hmmm. that's bad. the log doesn't show why this happened.

I think this warning is ignorable. It appears in config.log and seems benign.

I have no idea what causes this. I don't have any hppa boxes handy, so
I can't do any tests.  The link command comes from Python.
Did you have any problems compiling Python 2.0?
Do you have gcc installed?
Maybe there is another way to associate the libraries.. can you send me the
manual page for 'ld'?
