Summary: Solaris 10 link failed due to wrong order of -l/-L switches

Initial Comment:
We try to compile Curl 7.16.2 on Solaris 10. The directories given to 'configure --with-ssl=xyz' are put after the libraries for the linking process.

Solaris Linker requires -L before -l flags.

This worked with Curl 7.10.0. I noticed, tha Curl now
uses automake 1.10 and lib/ line 'libcurl_la_LDFLAGS' has changed. These changes break the Solaris build.

First, wouldn't this be the same on all Solaris versions?

Then, clearly (
built their packages fine with OpenSSL...

And last, the current autobuilds build fine on Solaris 10 with OpenSSL
( even though the
link will die within a few days)

Can you figure out what makes your case different from these others?
