This certainly doesn't ring any bells. You didn't accidentaly have any
left-overs in your build directory from building for another platform?

Did everything in your 'configure' session look ok?

I trust this was after 'make install' ?

What does "ldd /usr/local/lib/" say?

Does "nm /usr/local/lib/" list a loooong range of symbol names?

Do you happen to know if you can install other libtool-based libraries?
