I'm using libtool 1.4.3 on a RedHat 9 system and while trying to compile several libraries (notable libquicktime and pcre 4.2), I encounter the ff. problem: While compiling 2 libraries (with one dependent on the other), I reach this stage:

/bin/sh ./libtool --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c /var/tmp/pcre-root/usr/lib/
libtool: install: warning: relinking `'
(cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/pcre-4.2; /bin/sh ./libtool --mode=relink gcc -O2 -g -pipe -march=athlon -I. -I. -rpath /usr/lib -L. -lpcre -version-info 0:0:0 -o pcreposix.lo) gcc -shared pcreposix.lo -L/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/pcre-4.2 -L/usr/lib -lpcre -Wl,-soname -Wl, -o .libs/
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpcre

When I manually compile with the command:

gcc -shared pcreposix.lo -L/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/pcre-4.2/.libs -L/usr/lib -lpcre -Wl,-soname -Wl, -o .libs/

however, the compile succeeds.

My question is "Is libtool, in this case, producing the right command and commandline parameter to compile (specifically with the "-L/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/pcre-4.2" parameter)?" Or should it be producing "-L/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/pcre-4.2/.libs"? What's the problem with this scenario so I can attempt to correct it and additionally inform the package maintainers if the problem exist in their packages?
