I just want to report that I had to tweak the GDALmake.opt in order to
compile gdal-1.2.0 sources on Linux. I was using the Kakadu 4.1
distribution for jp2k support.
To get started, I was not able to compile Kakadu with gcc 2.95.3 -- our
default gcc installation. I had to swith to gcc 3.3.1 in order to
compile Kakadu. So, I had to use the same gcc 3.3.1 for GDAL also.
First I tried just:
./configure --with-prefix="...my_prefix ..."
The make process quit while trying to link 'libgdal.so'. Then I had to
hack the GDALmake.opt to explicitly specify a path to the location of
'-lkdu'. But when I did this, libtool started re-making some of the
sources on ogr/ and quit complaining about unresolved references to JP2K
functions in 'libgdal.so'. So, I reconfigure by including
'--without-libtool'. Now, it compiled file (I still had to re-hack
My testing of JP2K for 8-bit RGB files were ok. I 16-bit support seems
to be ok, though I had problems viewing them using 'kdu_show' (see my
previous post ion this).
