following up on this: I think, that this was because the files were not 
being satisfactorily linked/installed by the project build system before 
it attempted to link them into another module

I have worked around it by patching all the linking arguments like this

	-L${ROUTDIR} -lspatialindexnavel

to use direct references to the files in question, like this


and all this links without complaints now, QCad is running though 
there are still some problems with it
