bitlbee attempts to link to i386 libresolv.a on fedora 8 x64

OS version/distro: fedora 8 x64


tries to link with /usr/lib/libresolv.a instead of /usr/lib64/libresolv.a

CFLAGS includes correctly the lib64 directories. Just needed to change EFLAGS+=/usr/lib/libresolv.a line in Makefile.settings to EFLAGS+=/usr/lib64/libresolv.a

The error message:

* Linking bitlbee
/usr/bin/ld: i386 architecture of input file `/usr/lib/libresolv.a(res_data.o)' is incompatible with i386:x86-64 output
etc for other object files

Please apply the attached patch or better. If you dislike the libdir, please only apply the last hunk - without $libdir then of course. Specified libdir should be checked first, after that 64 bit directories, finally 32 bit directories. This is IMHO an usual case.

This is now properly fixed since glibc stopped being totally retarded and now has all the relevant functions available in
