This is a problem with assumptions about *features*
On Darwin we should be loading .dylib which is generated by the -
bundle option to gcc/ld
UFFI looks for tags in *features* as follows to determine the lib
type to load:
(defun foreign-library-types ()
"Returns list of string naming possible library types for
platform, sorted by preference"
#+(or win32 mswindows) '("dll" "lib")
#+(or macosx darwin ccl-5.0) '("dylib" "bundle")
#-(or win32 mswindows macosx darwin ccl-5.0) '("so" "a" "o")
Our compile script in elephant.asd relies on darwin/macosx as the
indicator as to what kind of library to produce (-shared vs. -
bundle). I have no idea why OpenMCL changed the *features* list!
I notice that :darwin-host is on the list to differentiate
from :darwin-target, presumably to allow cross-compilation.
I think the right solution is to push :macosx onto the *features*
list for now so everything just works. Do this before you load
elephant. Perhaps we can find out from the OpenMCL folks what the
right *feature* is to rely on before we modify our script and ask the
UFFI maintainer to add new tags to update foreign-library-types to
accommodate OpenMCL 1.1
