I've got a problem building devel/ncurses on IRIX 5.3; I'm not sure whether in
fact it is not a libtool problem.
The probably important lines in the log read:

/usr/people/schwarz/pkgsrc/devel/ncurses/work/.ido/bin/g++ -I../c++ -I../include
-I/usr/people/schwarz/pkgsrc/devel/ncurses/work/.buildlink/include -O2 -c
../c++/ >/dev/null 2>&1
cd ../lib && /usr/people/schwarz/pkgsrc/devel/ncurses/work/.wrapper/bin/libtool
--tag=CXX --mode=link /usr/people/schwarz/pkgsrc/devel/ncurses/work/.ido/bin/g++
 -O2  -o ../obj_lo/cursesf.lo ../obj_lo/cursesm.lo
../obj_lo/cursesw.lo ../obj_lo/cursespad.lo ../obj_lo/cursesp.lo
../obj_lo/cursslk.lo ../obj_lo/cursesapp.lo ../obj_lo/cursesmain.lo  -rpath
/usr/local/pkg/lib  -version-info 5:4 -L../lib -lncurses
*** [buildlink3] Warning: libtool replaced -lncurses with ../lib/
(cd .libs && rm -f && ln -s
(cd .libs && rm -f && ln -s
(cd .libs && rm -f && ln -s

This is ncurses 5.4, so why is it trying to link is not created, in fact no* is created at
What does it look like on other operating systems?
