bsd/os 4.x and linkers
Imported from http://bugzilla.roxen.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=461
Reported by eric lindvall, firstname.lastname@example.org
the configure script choses to use shlicc as LD for all versions of bsd/os. for using bsd/os 4.x, ld or gcc are better choices. (ld is what is chosen when you comment shlicc out, and it compiles fine).
