Issue description
If you clone the git repo, run "cmake . && make" it aborts under Debian testing/64bit because some libs can't be found.

Make looks for:

  • /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
  • /usr/lib/
  • possbily more libs

while they are located in at a different location, eg:
  • /usr/lib32/
  • /usr/lib32/

I don't know exactly how to fix this but I assume the cmake-file is the root of this problem.
Steps to reproduce this issue
Under a Debian testing (64 bit) system:

git clone git:// cmake . && make

Can you provide mor information on what exactly went wrong? For build failures it's always best to include the full output of cmake and make (remove CMakeCache.txt to get a clean cmake run).

Finding the packages is handled by cmake and should be configured by the distribution. This is however problematic on multilib systems as cmake doesn't check that the architectures match, but we verify this in our CMakeLists.txt should always use the correct version of the library or fail at configure time.

Also, is there a reason you would want a 32-bit build (which the libraries in /usr/lib32/ are for) on a 64-bit system? Arx Libertatis runs fine in 64-bit.

And suddenly everything was so clear...

I migrated my system from a 32 bit to a 64 bit system and simply copied my home folder, including the CMakeCache.txt which held references to 32 bit depencies of arx.

Removing taht file and running cmake again let me compile arx without any problems.

Sorry for the confusion and thanks for you time, Daniel!
