We tried to build Python Imaging Library(PIL 1.1.2) with Python 2.1.1 and gcc 
3.0 on our Solaris 2.8 machine. Everything went on smoothly until when we tried to build dynamic library at the top level directory. We got the following 
error messages:

gcc -shared  ./_imaging.o ./decode.o ./encode.o ./map.o ./display.o ./outline.o
./path.o  libImaging/libImaging.a -L/depot/lib -ljpeg -L/depot/lib -lz  -o ./_imaging.so

*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `_imaging.so'

The error messages ran several pages and we have no idea about what is going on.
The version of the packages that we use is jpeg 6b and zlib 1.1.3.
Does anyone have similiar experience and have solutions?

Thanks in advance.
