That's only true when pathes have to be encoded at compile time. For
systems like linux and solaris, the linker determines the libs at load
time (solaris uses crle like ldconfig on linux).
So the cross build succeeds for solaris (at least in this case).
The only problem is, my cross compiler is  gcc 3.4.4. And it uses
libstdc++.so.6 which is only pressent if the appropriate package is
installed on the target system... But that's another story.

BTW. Why do you intend to switch to LGPL for cvsnt (in whole?)?

Best regards,
