I am building xfsprogs to add it to my toolchain and want xfsprogs to
refer to my toolchain's libuuid. So I need libuuid.so in my toolchain.
But building e2fsprogs from sources doesn't build libuuid as .so (builds
as .a). Could you please give some pointers on building libuuid as .so?
Do I have to change Makefiles? How do you do it for ubuntu/debian
packages that you maintain?
Thanks in advance
