This is a shot in the dark, but in my Solaris days I recall using
-R/opt/local/lib (in this case) to tell the dynamic loader where to look for
the shared objects.  Would it help to add -R/opt/local/lib when compiling
under Solaris?


You forgot to mention -L as well.  :-) only shows gnome-libs up to about 2002.  Anyone know what it's called now?
