Re: Solaris and control-center

Hi David,

I think I can take a good stab at this for you:

That wasn't it.  That was just a warning.

Here's the error:   ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors.

ld failed to link because libXpm was needed but was not listed
using the syntax -lXpm.  Nowhere in the output was -lXpm.

Often, people fix errors like this with 

    LIBS="-lXpm" ./configure blah blah blah

but that's not a good idea in this case, because -lXpm is searched
for during configure.  If it's not being found during configure, then 
you want to know why.  So your job now is to look at the -lXpm section
of config.log and determine why it was not found and fix it.  Most likely
it was not found because of a symbol referencing error of its own that
you will solve with a LIBS statement.  I often have to add LIBS="-lnsl"
to most Gnome apps I configure on UnixWare 7, which is similar to Solaris.

Paste in the portion of config.log if you need help.

Take care,
