So it has -- the files in the tarball have modified dates after the 4.0.4 was released. It looks like they've redone the website and releases. I'll update to the latest version...

Seems the sha1sum has changed: d213b44cdf4feb0204efba52005afb7c7648b03d libxc-4.0.4.tar.gz

Compiling gpaw is somewhat out of scope for the libxc package but the issue is with gpaw -- it hardcodes (in config.py) the python library and the assumption it uses for the naming scheme is no longer valid for python 3 (see https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3149/ for details).

gpaw should instead use sysconfig.get_config_var('LDLIBRARY'). This can be done for earlier versions of python using distutils.sysconfig as well.

The linker looks for a file libpython3.5.so which is not present in /usr/lib. I had only the following libraries available:

/usr/lib/libpython2.7.so.1.0
/usr/lib/libpython3.5m.so -> libpython3.5m.so.1.0
/usr/lib/libpython3.5m.so.1.0
/usr/lib/libpython3.so

You can make it work by creating a soft link like this:
ln -s /usr/lib/libpython3.5m.so /usr/lib/libpython3.5.so

It's not a very clean solution however. Maybe someone can comment on why the python2 libs are named using major+minor version while the python3 is not.

I've added the shared libraries (--enable-shared) rather than adding --with-pic.-- gpaw installation for me now fails due to linking to python 3.5 but I don't have any experience with gpaw compilation. Could you test? Thanks.

Can you please add the --with-pic option to ./configure? Otherwise
the installation of gpaw fails.

'Updated' to 2.2.2. Note: this is actually the same as 2.1.2 except that the Fortran library is split out but it keeps getting flagged as out of date..

No problem, thanks for updating&maintaining this :D

Oops. I understand now. Thanks. Not sure how this worked before...

Thanks. Got a link for that information? I couldn't see it anywhere online. I don't use octopus though...
