Uhm, no, that's the the problem. I guess the configure message isn't very
clear, but what's it's referring to is that dlopen'ed imlib modules aren't
supported, because libtool 1.2d doesn't handle shared library deps. You
still get a fully functional imlib, it's just monolithic.

The real fix is to have libtool handle shared library deps on Solaris, which
CVS libtool has support for. However, this issue is non-critical, IMHO.

Indeed, it's been there for a while:

671   echo "int some_variable = 0;" > conftest.c
      ^^^^^ no longer an empty .c file for the test
