Ok, I installed binutils, but it didn't help.

I tried it both ways, but it still exited at the same point.

Here's the error message again while htfuzzy is compiling. The ld warning
appears in other places during the compilation, but doesn't exit.

Just a reminder I'm installing on Digital Unix 3.2c.

Any ideas would be great.


gcc -o htfuzzy -L../htlib -L../htcommon -L../db/dist -L../rx/rx -L/usr/lib
