I have the 7/01 release of the Companion CD installed and I have this
problem. You'll recall recent problems with gcc+solaris-ld recently
reported on this and other lists (by me). This is the same problem.
Libtool 1.4.2 detects but does not correct this problem.

The biggest problem for me is that gcc looks in /opt/sfw/include
and /opt/sfw/lib. Autoconf implements AC_CHECK_LIB for me like this:
configure:2562: gcc -o conftest -Wall -g -Wall -g  conftest.c -ldb   1>&5
(gcc is calling /usr/ccs/bin/ld internally, but with some extra -I/-L paths.)

OTOH, libtool calls ld directly with the "libtool --mode=link" command,
and of course ld knows nothing about /opt/sfw/bin, so libdb is detected
by autoconf but unable to be linked by libtool.

I'd like to figure out a way to convince libtool to always use gcc for
linking, and not ld, but setting LD doesn't seem to work.
