Using the SUNWspro compilers for the build, neither CXXFLAGS or LDFLAGS are used when linking together the shared libraries, so the "-mt" flag isn't being passed. The library dependencies probably aren't correct (non-threadsafe vs. threadsafe). Haven't seen problems resulting from this, but it should be examined at some point.

As of a couple of weeks ago, both CXXFLAGS & LDFLAGS are being used when making shared libs.
[richb - 5/4/00] I've just checked a recent M15 build with the Sun compilers. Library building now seems to be done with cc and with the -mt command line option. As Chris says, this would appear to no longer be a problem.
Per Rich's comments, marking fixed.
