  Hi Jerome,

  Thanks for the quick answer.

  Yes, doing "" works. It has the same effect of adding the "" file to the command line. It links. But since "" is not built in the current directory, running ldd "" shows that the path "-L../lib" is added to the dependencies:

	../lib/ => not found

  I couldn't set a LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that file is found.

  Copying "" to the current directory and removing "-L../lib" from the command line, works also without the dependency problem. But again that's not a good procedure for me that build for several platforms using the same folder in a server.

  Is there any way to remove that path from the dependencies? Other approaches?
