I found something interesting.  For IMLIB2, I'm trying to build the CVS 
version.  There was a previously released version that seems to build fine for 
me.  The big diffrence would be that the released version had configure scripts 
pre-built, whereas I, on the CVS version, run autoconf, automake, etc myself.

The release version compiles fine whereas the CVS version does not.  When 
comparing things I found that the release version sets the libtools 
"no_undefined_flags" to "-z text" yet when I use the CVS version I get the same 
variable set to "-z defs".  I changed "-z defs" to "-z text" and it builds 
without error now.

Is this a good idea or bad?  Whats the diffrence between the two?  And why 
might libtool/configure be setting it this way?

Please forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask this question, but I didn't 
know what better place.

I'm trying to build several projects from Linux on Solaris.  I'm using libtool 
1.4 and GCC 2.95.3 on Solaris8.  I'm building IMLIB2.  When I build it using 
the Sun linker I get the following behavour:

/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc  -g -O2 -L/usr/X11R6/lib -o
 -rpath /usr/local/lib/loaders/filter -no-undefined -module -avoid-version 
rm -fr .libs/ .libs/testfilter.* .libs/testfilter.*
/usr/ccs/bin/ld -G -z defs -h -o .libs/  
filter_test.lo  -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lc 
Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
imlib_create_color_modifier         filter_test.lo
imlib_free_image_and_decache        filter_test.lo
imlib_create_image                  filter_test.lo
imlib_image_fill_rectangle          filter_test.lo
imlib_context_set_color_modifier    filter_test.lo
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to .libs/

The interesting thing is that if I use GNU Binutils on Solaris the library 
builds with no problems... HOWEVER everything that uses this library compiled 
via Binutils code dumps on startup (Bus Error).  

I've removed binutils from my system, grabbed the latest Sun patch for the 
linker and tried over and over to get past this, but can't.  Can anyone help?  

Any help is _greatly_ appreciated.
