Summary: Compilation fails for Expat expat-1.95.1

Details: (cd .libs && rm -f libexpat.so.0 && ln -s libexpat.so.0.0.1 libexpat.so.0)
(cd .libs && rm -f libexpat.so && ln -s libexpat.so.0.0.1 libexpat.so)
ar cru .libs/libexpat.a  xmlparse.o xmltok.o xmlrole.o 
../libtool: ar: not found
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `libexpat.la'
Current working directory /export/home/rajanr/perl/xml/expat-1.95.1/lib
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `lib'

I then checked up the Makefile in the lib directory, it has LIBRARY=libexpat.la there. I could not understand the ar cru .libs/libexpat.a line.

Can some body help please

Problem solved I did not have access to the ar command, and added /usr/ccs/bin to my path and that cleared the problem.

Please close this record.
