Are the wrapped lines your mailer's or really from the output?

Well, that's not very clear.  If you can figure out what that complete
command is maybe run it separately from the command prompt and see if
the error makes any more sense.

Does ksh have an -x option to show the script (libtool) as it's executing?  That
might also be helpful.

Notice that "false cru" -- that's weird.  You might pay attention to
where that "false" is coming from in the script.  Do you have the "ar"
command on your machine?  Looks like it's trying to create an archive
of those modules and using "false" instead of "ar".  Maybe your
machine is hosed.  Do you see smoke coming out of the back?

Must be something going around -- with all those Solaris questions
