OK, the reason that configure is deciding strcasecmp.o is needed is that
it has no idea you are planning to link with /usr/ucblib/libucb.a.
Rather than editing the generated makefiles after the fact, you might
have better luck if you edit the template file you plan to use *before*
running configure. I think adding "-L/usr/ucblib -lucb" to the LIBS
line in the template file would solve this particular problem. I think
you had mentioned needing a few other unusual libraries as well --- you
should be able to take care of all of them that way.

Basically configure is assuming that your system library provides
both or neither. I think that's a reasonable assumption. Of course,
if we find any actual instances of systems with just one, we may have
to change it...
