I'm helping someone who has written a large X program that includes some
capability for dynamically loading modules. As such, his program needs
information about leading/trailing underscores in libraries.
Unfortunately, its not consistent across different NetBSD architectures
(mac68k has a leading underscore while pmax has none for example). Is
there a simple way with Imake or looking in some include file which may
provide this info? He doesn't want to use a GNU configure script due to
the style of license. If there is no other way, we can just use a short
shell script to determine it, but I was hoping there may be some "built
in" way. Any suggestions?
