From a user:

  1. FYI, on a Debian-based system, the include and lib directories for

compiling the hook library were somewhat different (especially the
lib) than the example in the docs:

-I /usr/local/include/kea
-L /usr/local/lib

Our apologies. Could you point us to the specific reference?

Building the Library

Building the code requires building a sharable library. This requires the the code be compiled as position-independent code (using the compiler's "-fpic" switch) and linked as a shared library (with the linker's "-shared" switch). The build command also needs to point to the Kea include directory and link in the appropriate libraries.

Assuming that Kea has been installed in the default location, the command line needed to create the library using the Gnu C++ compiler on a Linux system is:
g++ -I /usr/include/kea -L /usr/lib/kea/lib -fpic -shared -o \ \
    -lkea-dhcpsrv -lkea-dhcp++ -lkea-hooks -lkea-log -lkea-util -lkea-exceptions


    The compilation command and switches required may vary depending on your operating system and compiler - consult the relevant documentation for details.
    The values for the "-I" and "-L" switches depend on where you have installed Kea.
    The list of libraries that need to be included in the command line depends on the functionality used by the hook code and the module to which they are attached. Depending on operating system, you may also need to explicitly list libraries on which the Kea libraries you link against depend.

May need further clarification or correction.

Doesn't make sense: autotools and libtool should be used! Of course you can make this manually but please not be surprised because it is not portable...
