I am running into an issue with an Erlang install on our Unix machine (Solaris 10).

Erlang version: R16B03
OS: Solaris 10
GCC: 4.8.2
GNU Make: 3.81

I am following the steps listed on the official install page:

I have unpacked the tar file from erlang.org, these are the steps I have followed:

export ERL_TOP=<my local directory where tar file was unpacked>/otp_src_R16B03
export DED_LD=gcc #using gcc located at /usr/sfw/bin/gcc
export PATH=/usr/sfw/bin:/usr/xpg4/bin/:/bin
export DED_LDFLAGS=-shared
./configure -prefix=<target erlang install directory>

Configuration finished with: (I can post the entire output if necessary)

**********************  APPLICATIONS DISABLED  **********************

odbc           : ODBC library - link check failed

**********************  APPLICATIONS INFORMATION  *******************

wx             : wxWidgets not found, wx will NOT be usable

**********************  DOCUMENTATION INFORMATION  ******************

documentation  :
                 fop is missing.
                 Using fakefop to generate placeholder PDF files.

Then I ran make as instructed in the install instructions

gmake #located at /usr/sfw/bin/gmake
The error I receive is:
/usr/ucb/install -c -d ../priv/lib/i386-pc-solaris2.10
gcc -shared -o ../priv/lib/i386-pc-solaris2.10/crypto.so ../priv/obj/i386-pc-solaris2.10/crypto.o  /usr/lib -L/usr/lib -lcrypto
ld: fatal: file /usr/lib: unknown file type
ld: fatal: file processing errors. No output written to ../priv/lib/i386-pc-solaris2.10/crypto.so
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I don't understand why the make file would produce such a command, why is /usr/lib targeted there? It looks like it is following the generated makefile from $ERL_TOP/lib/crypto/c_src/Makefile.in, the corresponding makefile contain this:

        $(V_at)$(INSTALL_DIR) $(LIBDIR)
        $(V_LD) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@ $^ $(LDLIBS) $(CRYPTO_LINK_LIB)

Looks like something is wrong with the $LDLIBS variable. Does anybody know what's wrong?
