On Solaris? There might be an equivalent on Solaris, but in any case,
this is broken - we have plenty of packages using BerkDB3 and BerkDB4,
and they manage to build when told where to find the relevant library.
In this case, this isn't a runtime thing. This is simply a matter of
the autoconf script being _broken_. If I say "berkeley libs are in
this directory", I don't expect the autoconf test executables to fail
because they were linked without the correct runtime library path.

As far as "oh, but it's OS dependent how to spell -R" - I'd be stunned
if autoconf doesn't have a way to spell it in an OS independent way.

Requiring LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or the system-wide equivalent, is not an

(FWIW, once I actually get this thing built I will be putting Solaris
packages up on the web for other people to download)
