-lm tells it to use the m library. If you are including static libraries then you'll need the libm.a file and for the shared library you'll need I've got both of those files in /usr/lib they kind of belong to the minimal set of libraries you need. It's looking for the shared library though. Maybe your cache file is corrupt. You could try running /sbin/ldconfig. Or remove the file /etc/ first and then run the command.
