Weirdness in ld behaviour


Hello,
I'm trying to compile libnewt. I'm on slackware 12.1. After the configure step I go with make and I get:

Code:
root@camelot:~/newt/newt-0.52.2# make
cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o test.o test.c
cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang -DVERSION=\"0.52.1\" -c -o newt.o newt.c
cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o button.o button.c
button.c: In function 'buttonEvent':
button.c:149: warning: 'er.result' may be used uninitialized in this function
cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o form.o form.c
cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o checkbox.o checkbox.c
checkbox.c: In function 'cbEvent':
checkbox.c:210: warning: 'er.result' may be used uninitialized in this function
cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o entry.o entry.c
cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o label.o label.c

cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o textbox.o textbox.c
cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o scale.o scale.c

cc  -Wall  -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -DUTF8 -fPIC -I/usr/include/slang   -c -o checkboxtree.o checkboxtree.c
checkboxtree.c: In function 'ctDraw':
checkboxtree.c:526: warning: 'currRow' is used uninitialized in this function
checkboxtree.c:449: warning: 'spaces' may be used uninitialized in this function
ar rv libnewt.a newt.o button.o form.o checkbox.o entry.o label.o listbox.o scrollbar.o textbox.o scale.o grid.o windows.o buttonbar.o checkboxtree.o
ar: creating libnewt.a
a - newt.o
a - button.o
a - form.o
a - checkbox.o
a - entry.o
a - label.o
a - listbox.o
a - scrollbar.o
a - textbox.o
a - scale.o
a - grid.o
a - windows.o
a - buttonbar.o
a - checkboxtree.o
cc -g -o test test.o libnewt.a -lslang -lm -ldl  -static
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-slackware-linux/4.2.3/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lslang
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [test] Error 1
libslang files are in /usr/lib
Code:
root@camelot:~/newt/newt-0.52.2# ls /usr/lib/libslang*
/usr/lib/libslang.so@    /usr/lib/libslang.so.1.4.9*  /usr/lib/libslang.so.2.1.3*
/usr/lib/libslang.so.1@  /usr/lib/libslang.so.2@      /usr/lib/libslang1.so@
and with ldconfig -p I get:
Code:
root@camelot:~/newt/newt-0.52.2# ldconfig -p|grep slang
        libslang.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/lib/libslang.so.2
        libslang.so.1 (libc6) => /usr/lib/libslang.so.1
        libslang.so (libc6) => /usr/lib/libslang.so
the library IS there... what am I missing?

Thank you in avance!

Code:
cc -g -o test test.o libnewt.a -lslang -lm -ldl  -static
You make static link. In this case ld looks for libslang.a
You'll need to install this library (or make dynamic link)
