Ok, next try. undefined symbols in libsasl, due to a buggy
version of libtool used.

Ok, next try. computer crashes after compiling nonstop for 5 hours 30

Ok, reboot, and continue compiling for another 2 hours. Linker crashes
while linking with error undefined symbol "ldbm_back_abandon" (which
annoyingly looks like the do-nothing function defined in

So, just ruling out these possibilities:

- abandon.c contains a function ldbm_back_abandon:


- abandon.o is renamed to ldbmabandon.o and included in libbackends.a

- command line of gcc that fails includes libbackends.a

- libbackends.a(dbminit.o) has the undefined reference.

So, now I am stuck...

I don't see how this could be Hurd specific either.
