Re: libiberty should be a shared library when cc1 has plugin enabled.

But it seems to me that a plugin can call a libliberty function only if that

of all libiberty functions.

So... link libiberty into your plugin and get make_temp_file that way.

As far as I understand ELF shared objects, it is not recommended to link a static library into a dynamic plugin (i.e. an ELF shared object), because the static library is not compiled with -fPIC.
(if you do that, the resulting plugin is getting a huge lot of relocation information).
In simpler words, *.so have to be compiled with -fPIC, and libiberty is not compiled with -fPIC.

I am clear enough or should I explain more?
