Several plathomes have problems when shared library depends on static library.
I observed this problem on FreeBSD 2.2.2. Shared libraries for Kpathsea 3.2 is not generated by default compilation using default distribution on several plathomes that supports shared library, e.g., FreeBSD. In such case, if a shared library for VFlib created, application programs dumps core, since VFlib (dynamically linked) depends on kpathsea.
To avoid such a problem, try one of the following methods:
web2c-lt-7.2b.tar.gz(Changed to compile only kpathsea library)
