problem with gettext and libtool

I configured gettext with this command

../gettext-0.11.5/configure --prefix=/proj/wdt/gettext-0.11.5 

In /proj/wdt/sun5.1/lib I have a links pointing to the libiconv libraries

/proj/wdt/sun5.1/lib/libiconv.la       -> 
/proj/wdt/sun5.1/lib/libiconv.so       -> 
/proj/wdt/sun5.1/lib/libiconv.so.2     -> 
/proj/wdt/sun5.1/lib/libiconv.so.2.0.3 -> 
/proj/wdt/sun5.1/lib/libiconv.so.2.1.0 -> 
/proj/wdt/sun5.1/lib/libiconv_plug.so  -> 

Now in /proj/wdt/gnu_sun5.1 the libinconv is actually a link also

libiconv -> libiconv-1.8/

So the problem comes when libtool run. Somewhere in the configure step
and the gmake step there is a difference in the way that the pointer
to the libiconv libraries is handled.

Here is what the make says

 /bin/sh ../libtool --mode=install /proj/wdt/sun5.8/bin/ginstall -c  
libgettextsrc.la /proj/wdt/gnu_sun5.8/gettext-0.11.5/lib/libgettextsrc.la
libtool: install: warning: relinking `libgettextsrc.la'
cd /proj/wdtold/warrend/gnusrc/gettext-0.11.5/gettext-0.11.5_sun5.8/src; 
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=relink gcc -g -O2 -o libgettextsrc.la -rpath

I put echos in the libtool at this error message


are the two things it fails on. But via the links they really are the

I really want it to stick to the /proj/wdt/sun5.8 without going
through link so I can install a newer version and just chnage one
