Solaris  8
Studio 11 compiler suite
Solaris linker

The 'configure' script adds "no_undefined_flag=' -z defs'" to 'libtool'  which kills the generation of the shared library when the linker cannot find the symbol 'program_name'.  Unfortunately, gnulib/lib/error.c' references "program_name" which is not defined until the link edit phase of the various executables.  I tried '-z text' but that failed with the undefined symbol 'xt'.
