Yes I am on Arch linux...The bloodest bledding edge distro ;)

That is why I am moving to LFS for all my computers...It's more sane.
I don't care for all the "split" packages etc.  I just want something that

Just setting the CFLAGS CXXFLAGS LDFLAGS, which I now believe is indeed the 
problem.  THe funny thing is I set CFLAGS to what it builds with by default( 
without me seeting the flags) and use that in the CFLAGS to then build it.
It will not make/build the shared library until you do a autoreconf.  I don't 
know why that happens.

I am setting the FLAGS so I camn build once install everywhere.  I'll just 
need to look at things better when setting the flags.  Any way this old fart 
has learned something today.   If you are going to mess with the flags an 
autoreconf may be in order.
