I have updated to the latest Current. I had similar problem while compiling
GNU Octave. But after moving .la files as suggested, it worked.
I am still not very clear about the purpose of .la files. Can anybody point
me to some links?
But after this, my system is working properly without any problem.
Thanks for your help.
