To clarify Peter's point, -lICE -lSM are from the X11R6 distribution,
but last I checked, OpenWindows (which is what Sun shipped with the
2.5 distribution, I've got my hands on a machine running 2.6), uses
X11R5, which doesn't have those two libraries.

If you've got a confused X set up (like a local version of The Open
Group's (was MIT's) X11R6 build, this could be the result.

You should determine the version of X, and link accordingly.

The only other thought is that Sun "forgot" to ship the SM and ICE
libs; they did that with a different library a few OS distributions
ago (Slowaris 2.3?).

Or it might be some confusion (XlispStat's configure once had a
similar problem a long time ago).
