gaim trying to link static and shared libraries

Hi there,
yet another problem compiling gaim (I get a different problem with each version upgrade I attempt >_<). I run ./configure just fine, with the possible exception of a lack of a file called "Dynaloader.a". Make, however, spits this out at me:
Making all in perl

make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/laura/Download/gaim-0.68/plugins/perl'
From a quick "ls /usr/lib/.../Dynaloader/" it's apparent that the Dynaloader.a file does exist. Is there anything I can do to get it to link against perl? I've read that a strategically-placed symlink sometimes solves problems like this but I'm not sure what I'd need to do to make it "portable". Does anyone have any ideas?
