Hello,

I was trying to get a good backtrace for a segfault in linphone-desktop
(see http://issues.guix.gnu.org/47641).  So I added a debug output for
liblinphone, and did the following:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
./pre-inst-env guix environment --ad-hoc linphone-desktop \
               linphone-desktop:debug liblinphone liblinphone:debug --no-grafts
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The --no-grafts is to workaround http://issues.guix.gnu.org/48907.

Then I did the usual dance to get the GDB symbols resolved:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
export GDB_DEBUG_FILE_DIRECTORY=$GUIX_ENVIRONMENT/lib/debug

But the liblinphone.so symbol table was not found.

This is due to linphone-desktop symlinking the lib/ directory of
liblinphone directly under its own, to workaround some FHS bogus
assumption.  GDB only knows the shared library from that location (it
doesn't dereference symlink) and fails to find the symbols.

Thanks,

Maxim
