The link command uses `../libgnomeui/', not `-lgnomeui'.
So the -L argument will be ignored in this case.  Well, it should be.
libtool seems to transform the argument into `-lgnomeui', and it puts
../libgnomeui/.libs into LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Maybe this means that libtool has a bug on FreeBSD.  Maybe adding to
LD_LIBRARY_PATH isn't enough on that OS (about which I know literally
nothing).  Could you see if a newer version of libtool does something
different?  Or if you can figure out what libtool ought to be doing?
