Hm.  Maybe we should remove the libgen item from configure.  I have no
idea what platform it was required on (and there's no documentation
in the configure script about it) ... but it's very likely obsolete.

I'd suggest make clean, edit src/Makefile.global to remove -lgen from
the LIBS macro, and rebuild.
