Using the latest 2.2.0-rc1 suite, since the gold linker is no longer listed as required by the lttng-tools README, I removed it (removed the binutils-gold package) to revert to the default linker, and then tried to rebuild lttng-tools. To my surprise, it failed with "undefined reference to symbol 'timer_settime@@GLIBC_2.3.3'". Stranger yet, rebuilding it with LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib passed to the configure call fixed the problem. My understanding was that the gold linker needed LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib in the configure because it ignored, so the default linker should not have the same problem.

The build is:

./bootstrap &> bootstrap.log
./configure --enable-python-bindings &> configure.log
./make &> make.log

The failure is:
