[XForms] Building Xforms on Solaris

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to build xforms-1.0.90 on a Solaris 9 machine. I'm using 
gcc-3.2.2 to compile, and

./configure --prefix=/opt/tools --enable-demos --enable-warnings \

The problem comes when the demos are being built, ibrowser will not 
link, and I get

gcc -g -O -Wall -o .libs/ibrowser ibrowser.o  -L/usr/openwin/lib 
-L/opt/graphics/lib -L/opt/GNU/gcc-3.2.2/lib -L/opt/GNU/lib 
../image/.libs/libflimage.so ../lib/.libs/libforms.so -lSM -lICE 
/opt/graphics/lib/libjpeg.so -lXpm -lX11 -lsocket -lnsl -lc -lm 
-R/opt/tools/lib -R/opt/graphics/lib -R/usr/openwin/lib 
-R/opt/GNU/gcc-3.2.2/lib -R/opt/GNU/lib
Undefined                       first referenced
  symbol                             in file
.LLC90                              ../image/.libs/libflimage.so
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to .libs/ibrowser

gmake[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/home/opt-user/download/xforms-1.0.90/demos'
gmake: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

This is a completely new one to me, and Google is not throwing up 
anything helpful. Does anyone have any ideas on what I might try? My aim 
is to get Lyx up and running, but until I can solve (or sidestep) this 
problem, I'm stuck.

Many thanks
