System Configuration
Architecture (example: Intel Pentium) : SUN Ultra-60

Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF) : Solaris 7

PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-6.5.3): PostgreSQL-6.5.3

Compiler used (example: gcc 2.8.0) : gcc-2.95.2

Please enter a FULL description of your problem:

We have the GNU readline library outside of the "system" directories,
in /usr/local/packages/readline.

Attempting to tell configure where to find the includes and libs by use
of --with-include= and --with-lib= works, EXCEPT that when the OBDC interface
is being made the expected -L directive is not passed into that directory's
make environment and the making of libpsqlodbc.so.0.25 fails thus

ld -G -o libpsqlodbc.so.0.25 info.o bind.o columninfo.o connection.o convert.o
drvconn.o environ.o execute.o lobj.o misc.o options.o pgtypes.o psqlodbc.o
qresult.o results.o socket.o parse.o statement.o gpps.o tuple.o tuplelist.o
dlg_specific.o -lgen -lcrypt -lnsl -lsocket -ldl -lm -lreadline -ltermcap
-lcurses -ldl -lsocket -lresolv -lnsl -lm -lc
ld: fatal: library -lreadline: not found

Please describe a way to repeat the problem. Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible:

Try placing the readline library outside of the "system" area
and configuring as detailed above

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:

Compiling by hand creates the library and allows a full compilation
but I guess that the real answer is to:

Fix the Makefiles to percolate the -L directive down into the ODBC
interface Makefiles. Reference is made to a LDFLAGS_ODBC within there.
Perhaps this is not tied to the top-level LDFLAGS ?

Apologies for not being able to look further into this at this time,
