If changing target, building of few projects fails on Mac OS X

Detailed description
* Create new hildon plugin project or sharedlib project , use diablo armel target. Project is compiled properly.
* Change target (from project properties) to X86, project compiling fails...
* If projects are created from the scratch they will be compiled ok with both targets but changing target is the key
word to get this problem active. So seems that problem is somehow related to cleanup etc.
Same scenario works on linux and windows environment...

More info about hildonplugin project in attached files.

From shared lib project logs are here:
make -k all "CFLAGS=-O0 -g" "CXXFLAGS=-O0 -g"

gcc -O0 -g -Wall -o test_sharedlib test/test_sharedlib.o .libs/ -Wl,-z -Wl,origin -Wl,-rpath

sbox-i686-linux-gcc: .libs/ No such file or directory

make: *** [test_sharedlib] Error 1

make: Target `all' not remade because of errors.


*** exited with code 2

This should be fixed now (I hope) (Mica rev 3304).  In both the
Shared Library and Hildon Desktop Plugins projects, we use a
script called "" (part of the template) to
do some tests with softlinks to see if they work as expected.
If not, uses of "ln -s" are replaced with

This test is redone when a Debian package is made, and should
always use softlinks.  (The package build is done entirely in
a Linux filesystem.)

Thanks.  It looks like Samba is significantly different beween
3.0.25 and 3.0.28, so this softlink issue and apparently the
encrypted password issue are different.

In any case, I could still reproduce it on 10.5.

I tested this issue with Esbox_build.542 and Mac OS 10.6.1 (Samba
version 3.0.28a-apple) and now it's working Ok.

To clarify, Arto, do you see the bug manifesting itself like

make -k clean "CFLAGS=-O0 -g" "CXXFLAGS=-O0

rm -rf .libs
rm: cannot remove directory `.libs': Directory not empty
make: *** [clean] Error 1

This bug still exists with sharedlib projects (C and C++).
Tested with Esbox_build.506 and Samba 3.0.25b-apple, which is
official version for Mac OS X Version 10.5.8.

Fixed these two projects to avoid this bug.

This is a Samba bug.  Samba 3.0.25b-apple (which was my version,
via "smbclient --version") is too old.  There is a
fix in 3.0.25c.

I thought this was a bug related to autogen not being re-run,
but it's more likely just a bug in the template... "ln -sf"
should almost always be used for cases like this, not "ln
