I'm not sure you've looked at the problem. Cause there aren't many good

The only way to truly properly fix it would be to have configure
construct a list of sub-directories under which a .libs directory may be
built. Since I was unwilling to do that, I opted for the simpler
solution: having the highest level Makefile (which is in
agent/mibgroup/; note the comment above patch; it's not for the top
level Makefile) remove the .libs directories from everything below it
using a wild card.


a1) it is from the local makefile. Or the most local there could be
(the patch is for agent/mibgroup/Makefile.in; see original post)

a2) the alternative is a much more nasty configure change

We're doing this already:

# grep .libs */Makefile | grep rm
agent/Makefile: rm -rf .libs
apps/Makefile: rm -rf .libs
local/Makefile: rm -rf .libs
man/Makefile: rm -rf .libs
mibs/Makefile: rm -rf .libs
snmplib/Makefile: rm -rf .libs
