I think the problem is this:
checking whether the cc linker (/usr/bin/ld -m elf64ppc) supports shared
checking dynamic linker characteristics... GNU/Linux ld.so
checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... unsupported
checking whether stripping libraries is possible... yes
checking if libtool supports shared libraries... no
checking whether to build shared libraries... no
checking whether to build static libraries... yes
ld cannot link to shared libraries, so it is built static, and aferwards at the
end installer is trying to find shared libraries which does not exist. But I
don't have an idea why my linker does not support shared libs.
