Thanks for help!
Upgrading to libtool-1.5.10 fixed the problem.

Hi Elmar,

Using libtool on SunOS causes a lot of masseages like:
Usage: grep -hblcnsviw pattern file . . .
grep: illegal option -- e
grep: illegal option -- L
grep: illegal option -- /
grep: illegal option -- o
grep: illegal option -- p

I'm quite surprised to see this.

It seems, that libtools is expecting GNU grep.


On SunOS grep, which is installed in /usr/bin, doesn't accept the option '-e'. But there is another grep installed on the system (in /usr/xpg4/bin), which accept this option.

Maybe it's possible to check if which grep accepts this option?

That should already be done (i.e., the xpg4 version should be chosen

address@hidden sauxy2 557$ uname -a
SunOS sauxy2 5.9 Generic_112233-11 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-280R
address@hidden sauxy2 558$ libtool --version (GNU libtool) 1.5.2 (1.1220.2.60 2004/01/25 12:25:08)

Please update to at least 1.5.10 and report whether the problem is
fixed.  If not so: how can I easily reproduce this problem?
Which Autoconf version do you use?  If <2.54, try to see if the problem
goes away after upgrading to a newer Autoconf (if that is possible).

In any case, if the problem persists after Libtool upgrade, I'd like to
see a shell trace of a libtool run where this happens (`libtool --debug'
or `$CONFIG_SHELL -x libtool').
