[Ipopt] Created shared objects for Ipopt using the Intel compilers

Hello again Tony.

When I compile with GCC, the command used to test the shared library support is reported as:

  configure:8764: checking whether the gcc linker (/usr/bin/ld -m elf_x86_64) supports shared libraries

… but, as per my earlier email when using the Intel compilers it seems to think the linker command is ‘link’.

Do you know how to control/influence the linker command?

Kindest regards,

You should be able to find some evidence in config.log, either in the top-level build directory or one level down in the Ipopt subfolder, search for something like "whether to enable shared libraries" or "whether to build shared libraries." There might be some logic either in one of the configure.ac, or BuildTools/coin.m4, or libtool files that could be disabling shared libraries when using the Intel compilers? I don't have a lot of experience using the Intel compilers but I've used MKL a few times before and have done more than my share of debugging strange configure/build issues. It might help if you could upload the config.log and libtool files (both top-level and under Ipopt subfolder) to somewhere like pastebin or gist.github.com <http://gist.github.com/>, so those of us who know what to look for could try skimming through them.
