Yes I have seen this also. This is a bug in jade's Makefile system
and autoconfigure support. Adding any 'extra' system libraries will
produce this error. There should be a separate Makefile variable for
extra system libraries (not built within the distribution)!

Don't know what's happening here. I have access to Sparc Solaris 2.4
and 2.6 systems. I'm afraid don't have 2.5 but I'll give a try it on
those systems and let you know in a couple of days.
