Total silence on build-dev. Perhaps someone on awt-dev knows what to 
look for?

Please cc me as I'm not a member of awt-dev.

I have a problem building for Solaris-i586. When building libjawt.so I
get missing symbol references that should be coming from libxawt.so.
However the -L path is for lib/i386 whereas xawt.so resides in
lib/i386/xawt, hence it isn't found.

I can't tell why this error is arising. Does anyone have any suggestions
as to what might be the source of the problem?

The other possibility is that the lib is meant to be build with "z
nodefs" rather than "z defs" - though again I'm not sure where this flag
might be being mis-set.
