I am using autotools on openSUSE 11.0 x86_64 where I have a couple of libraries (notably the X libraries) installed as both 32 and 64 bit versions. I seem to have a problem which has been discussed several times on this list (libtool tries to link the 32 bit libraries instead of the 64 bit ones, resulting in a `could not read symbols: File in wrong format' error), however, all the ideas suggested there do not seem to work here.

This are the versions of the autotools
autoconf: 2.61
automake: 1.10.1
libtool: 1.5.26

It seems that your libtool is out of date. The current release is 2.2.6. It is likely to work better.

thanks for this info. 1.5.26 is the default for openSUSE 11.0. However, I have installed libtool version 2.2.6 on my system now. With this, after regeneration of of the aclocal.m4 files, I still get an error message, although a different one:

libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/' or unhandled argument `/usr/lib/'

Here is the result of a call to `locate libXfixes':
So, there still for this library the incorrect path is used. Or am I doing something wrong?
Best regards
