Error compiling XChat....

I asm trying to compile Xchat2.1 on my Suse 10.0 PC and ended up with the following error. Can anyone please help me what's going wrong?
$ make
.... -lXrender -lX11 -lXext -lpng12 -lz /usr/lib/ -lm -lssl -lcrypto -ldl /opt/gnome/lib/
/usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/4.0.2/../../../../i586-suse-linux/bin/ld: Invalid version tag `EXPORTED'. Only anonymous version tag is allowed in executable.
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [xchat] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/xxxx/packages/xchat-2.1.1/src/fe-gtk'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/xxxx/packages/xchat-2.1.1/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/xxxxx/packages/xchat-2.1.1'

first is there some reason for using such an old (2 years old) version and not using 2.6.1 ?

basically its just a misconfigured makefile
might be some things to try if you need the older version
one of them
./configure --with-gnu-ld

as a nasty dirty hack you might try removing the contents of the Makefile variable
and make it empty
