Yes, thanks for the analysis - I'm trying to track down a fault with the
linker/libtool - the fact that I'm compiling kdelibs isn't particularly
relevant, and your questions about paths and so forth were extremely
patronising given the circumstances.   Given your recent experience with
libtool, I was hoping you (or someone else) might be able to offer
assistance.  I still hope that's the case.

Again, what do you think the answer to this question is?  Given that
2/3rds of the current bugs in the bug system were reported by me, please
given me a little credit.

As it is, the error occurs with some very sizable objects and libraries.
I may be able to construct a test case in the fullness of time, but
there's no certainty here, as I don't have many clues as to what might
cause this.
