Hi, all

I am having problem building gnome-libs.  I get an error of:
checking for gmodule support... no
configure: error: Dynamic linking is not available on this platform. Some apps,
like panel, will not run properly.

work/gnome-libs- shows this:
configure:5414: checking for gmodule support
configure:5435: gcc -o conftest -I/usr/pkgsrc/x11/gnome-libs/work/.buildlink/include -O2 -I/usr/pkg/share/x11-links/include -Wall -Wunused  -I/usr/pkgsrc/x11/gnome-libs/work/.buildlink/include  -I/usr/pkg/share/x11-links/include -I/usr/pkgsrc/x11/gnome-li

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:
#line 5425 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

#include <gmodule.h>

int main()
  return g_module_supported() == 0;

gmodule.h is under work/.buildlink/include/glib/glib-1.2, and libgmodule.* are
under work/.buildlink/lib.

What should I do to resolve this problem?  Thanks.
