Re: libtool: error: cannot find the library '/usr/lib/'...

I'm trying to rebuild texlive, and the build on x86 is failing as follows:

libtool:   error: cannot find the library '/usr/lib/' or unhandled argument '/usr/lib/'

(/usr/lib/ was removed from the x86 distro in the recent update of libxcb-devel.)

I think I found the problem, but I don't have access to my build machine right now to test it: Several /usr/lib/*.la files include the non-existent /usr/lib/ in their dependency_libs. In particular, this is true of /usr/lib/ So I'm guessing that the presence of -lXext in the libtool command line is causing libtool to look for /usr/lib/

Can someone confirm this guess? If I'm right, then it seems that /usr/lib/ should be restored until all packages that depend on it can be rebuilt.
