I'm having a problem with the BeeCrypt check for RPM 5.0.3.  I have
indeed installed BeeCrypt 4.1.2 as part of my new installation of RPM 5
on a SunOS 5.8 box, but the ./configure script gives me the following:

  checking beecrypt/api.h usability... yes
  checking beecrypt/api.h presence... yes
  checking for beecrypt/api.h... yes
  checking for mpfprintln in -lbeecrypt... no
  checking whether to build with BeeCrypt library... no
  configure: error: mandatory BeeCrypt library not found

Something about the mpfprintln() call not compiling / linking correctly.
 I will get back to tracking this tomorrow (I'm on UTC+2 + DST) but I
thought that if anyone could come up with a suggestion it would save me
some time and trouble.  Bad library paths?  Missing include?  Compiler
flags?

FWIW,

% uname -a
SunOS SV650 5.8 Generic_108528-09 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-100


TIA,
