-   Patches have been adopted upstream
-   microblaze and powerpc should build now
-   changed build from CMake to using plain Makefile as
    CMake build doesnt seem particularly well maintained
-   openssl is automatically used if available

Thanks for this update. A few comments/questions below.

We need your Signed-off-by here, and an indication that this is a
backport from upstream (if that's the case).

It's not great because you force using -lz even in dynamic linking
situations. What about instead something like this:

PKG_CONFIG ?=

ifeq ($(OPSYS),GNU/Linux)
  ifeq ($(NO_SSL),)
    LIBS = -lpthread -lrt
    ifeq ($(PKG_CONFIG),)
      LIBS += -lssl -l crypto
    else
      LIBS += $(shell $(PKG_CONFIG) --libs crypto)
    endif
  endif
endif

And same for libuuid. pkg-config automatically returns the right result
depending on whether dynamic linking or static linking is used.

And so, how is this issue fixed ?

Here, the build fails for me, it calls ranlib without arguments:

Usage: /home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/host/bin/arm-linux-ranlib [options] archive

Could you have a look ?

-
-It is common for CMake packages to make sure that 'make install'
-works properly, and that's what most users expect.
-
-More specifically, build systems such as Buildroot also expect
-'make install' to do the right thing for CMake-based packages

-Subject: [PATCH] linux: provide canonicalize_file_name for all c libs except
- glibc
-
-musl was not covered so far, and this library does not define a
-macro for detection.
-unless glibc is detected, a canonicalize_file_name implementation
-will be provided.
