I downloaded and rebuilt the source for guile-1.6.7, and g-wrap-1.9.6,
but i kept running into the same issue.
This thread offers clues to what it was:
It has to do with configure/libtool thinking you use *.a instead of
This is what you want:
configure:13555: checking if libtool supports shared libraries
configure:13557: result: yes
configure:13564: checking whether to build shared libraries
configure:13585: result: yes
configure:13592: checking whether to build static libraries
configure:13596: result: no
I want to think I copied a utility from the other build directories to
get the configure to specify shared libraries, but for the life of me I
can't find evidence of that now.
