There was a patch sent to this mailing list several months ago, when
libtool 1.4 was not released.

Does that still apply cleanly?

(I didn't bother with this before, because my initial tests of libtool
1.4 final said everything was OK - I don't know what has changed

One quick fix solution might be to give the linker a parameter like:


to help it find the installed libraries, even if this is at a
non-standard location. However, I would be very cautious, if the
linker searched /usr/lib first(??), it might link the wrong version of
the library.

My preferred fix would be to replace instances of

with something like

which would be guaranteed to get the correct library.
