Yes, I am building on Solaris 2.4 and 2.5.1.  If I build without any
-L or -R flags, the makefile cannot find -lslang, -lncurses at the
very least.  These are not in /usr/ccs/lib - they are in a local
library that is not in any standard place - as I have mentioned numerous times
previous to this.

I'm not arguing whether or not /usr/ccs/lib is or is not specified in
the makefile; I really could not care much less about that issue.

What I _do_ care about is that _if_ a -L is provided where a .so
is found, and _if_ that directory is not one that the run time dynamic
linker will search, _then_ a -R needs to be generated for that directory.
