Has anyone seen this behavior?:
Compiling source soucer code for another application, I realized that I
did not configure correctly. So I removed the src dir and untar'ed the
soruces again in the exact same directory. I than proceed to change the
configure and recompiled the source. However, I got the exact same code
size for libs and exectuable. So I tried the process over again, erased
the original source code, untar'ed to the same dir, configured and then
compiled again. But yet again I got the exact same exectuable and lib
sizes which did not make sense.
Figuring something was up, I moved the source to a different name and
untar'ed again the original source, configured, and compiled, this time
I got the correct result, a binary that had debugging information and
libraries that were different (and correct).
So my question, why did I see this!?!?!
kernel 2.4.20 with aa patches (includes XFS support).
