Building -current on the VAX has run into a couple of problem in both EGCS 
and amd. In both cases there is a library (libbfd in the egcs case and 
libamu in the amd case) that isn't quite built.

In both of these cases the Makefile in the library subdirectory has has 
"MKLINKLIB=no", consequently when later programs are linked with -lbfd or 
-lamu they don't find a library to link againt. There is a libbfd_pic.a and 
a libamu_pic.a in the obj directory however.

So could someone tell me if the correct fix is to change the link lines to 
-lbfd_pic and -lamu_pic or what to get this to build. (the obvious fix of 
commenting out the MKLINKLIB also works but I'm obviously missing why it is 
there in the first place)
