[XForms] Building Xforms on Solaris

Hi JMarc,

Well, if I don't build the demos, xforms claims to build OK, but when I 
try to build LyX I get this problem come up. All the demos that build 
seem to run OK - assorted boxes, buttons, forms etc come up and go away 
in a controlled manner.

Where LyX falls down is in a test to find flimage_dup; I can reproduce 
the error with a test.c

char flimage_dup ();
main ()
flimage_dup ();
   return 0;

compiled with

gcc -o test test.c -L/opt/tools/lib -lflimage -ljpeg -lforms -lXpm

Hope that sheds some more light
