libc++.so in default binary distribution.

Hi to all,

when I download the clang/llvm officila binaries, I found the libc++ headers under lib directory,

but I didn’t found libc++.so.

Why you ship libc++ headers but no shared library?

Thanks!

Hi,

This also looks illogical to me. Build system based on autoconf does not support libc++ build, but does “installation” of system headers. libc++ is built by separate script. An alternative build system based on CMake does support libc++ build, but not on MacOS (where it’s actually really needed starting from MacOS 10.9). On MacOS CMake is missing important switches for libc++, which are Mac specific (they are in “buildit” script under -apple- triple alternative), so the resulting library is not really usable.

So, it’s not only the problem of distribution, but also the problem of build system.
