Osi buildsystem overrides default flags

Reported by: chm.duquesne Owned by: mjs
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Osi Base Class Version: 0.100.2
Keywords: Cc:


OSI modifies the default installations flags from the inside. This is a bad practice and should be avoided.

When typing './configure; make; make install', the user would expect osi to be compiled with the default flags '-g -O2' and to be installed in /usr/local. Osi breaks this implicit rule by setting different compile flags and changing the installation directory from the inside.

Specific needs for development should be pushed in Osi with wrappers around ./configure rather that hardcoding them in

Because of this, osi has to be repackaged in most distribution because it does not meet their guidelines, making the library unpopular and hard to find on most distribs. This is at least true for Fedora.
