Subject: [hwloc-devel] hwloc-1.3.1 libtool broken on Solaris10-x86
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])

When running "make install" for hwloc-1.3.1 on my Solaris-10/x86 system
I am seeing multiple messages like:
> libtool: install: (cd
> /export/home/phargrov/OMPI/hwloc-1.3.1-solaris10-x86-gcc343/INST/lib
> && { ln -s -f || { rm -f
> && ln -s; }; })
> Usage: ln [-f] [-s] f1
> ln [-f] [-s] f1 f2
> ln [-f] [-s] f1 ... fn d1

This is because "ln -s -f" is being run by libtool while "ln" on this
platform is happy only with "ln -f -s".
This sensitivity to argument order is sad, but true.
