I've never seen that.

That means `load-extension' et al. won't work (we could use Libtool's
preopen magic to make it work with static libraries, but we currently

I guess your linker supports shared libs but the `configure' somehow
fails to see it.  Apparently Libtool's `_LT_LINKER_SHLIBS' M4 macro
hasn't been ported to your platform, leading to this incorrect
diagnostic.  Can you report this to address@hidden

In the meantime, can you try "./configure --with-gnu-ld" and report the
output of `grep' similarly?

Hmm, this looks fishy as `string-ci<?' is a primitive procedure defined
in libguile.

I don't have access to an "i786" machine, so I'm afraid I won't be able
to help much.
