Cannot Attach in a Plan where CFLAGS, LIBRARY_PATH, or LD_LIBRARY_PATH are modified


When trying to debug a plan where I need to modify the value of CFLAGS, LIBRARY_PATH, or LD_LIBRARY_PATH, I am getting the following:

### Attaching to debugging session

From: /src/ @ line 32 :

Dependency conflicts between different versions of glibc

@smacfarlane @fnichol Any ideas on this?


I think this is likely more fallout from the recent package refresh. The studio is still
shipping executables built on the pre-refresh packages (glibc 2.22).

[1][default:/src:0]# cat /hab/pkgs/core/grep/2.22/20170513213444/TDEPS 

If your LD_LIBRARY_PATH or similar variables causes the loader to pick up newer
libraries, all sorts of fun ensues. For example:

[6][default:/src:127]# hab pkg install core/glibc

A quick follow-up. This type of problem is always /technically/ possible when using tools with LD_LIBRARY_PATH and similar variables set.

However, because of the refresh, we are now in a situation where most of the executables on disk were built against libraries that are older than those that will be resolved during the build. This is why we’ve now seen a few reports of similar errors in the context of attach .

In the case of attach, the user is using a tool built with the pre-refresh versions of a library and is executing commands in the context of their where they are most likley to have variables such as LD_LIBRARY_PATH set.

I think rebuilding the studio to include the most recent versions of all the packages should improve the situation for most users.
