I have made change to configure/configure.in and added a Makefile.in to help
with the problem (I had problems compiling for UnixWare). I will be testing
[the UnixWare part of] the patches over the new few days. I will submit the
after I complete prlimiary testing. I will also mail the patch to anyone else
who would like to test for a specific port.

I aggree that the shared library handling needs to be standardized and the
port specific information moved to the port specific Makefile.

Hmmmm.... I don't now autoconf well enough (yet) to handle this change.
