-------------- next part --------------
i'm building pdftex on a sort-of standard sparc-sun-solaris2.8.
I get a linker problem in building ctangleboot
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc -o ctangleboot   ctangleboot.o cwebboot.o lib/lib.a ../kpathsea/libkpathsea.la -lm  
gcc -o ctangleboot ctangleboot.o cwebboot.o  lib/lib.a ../kpathsea/.libs/libkpathsea.a -lm
ld: fatal: symbol `main' is multiply-defined:
        (file ctangleboot.o and file lib/lib.a(main.o));
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to ctangleboot
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake: *** [ctangleboot] Error 1
It seems, that the build process is assuming a ld that quietly
suppresses multiply defined objects.
This shouldn't be so.
Wishing a happy day
