I have successfully build syslog-ng-2.1.3 with --enable-dynamic-linking on 
Solaris 8.
While trying to build using --enable-static-linking option, it is not 
allowing me to configure syslog-ng-2.1.3 version on my Solaris 8 box 
(sparc). It is not able to find glib-2.0.a (Static library), though it is 
available in /usr/local/lib path.

-rw-r--r--   1 root      2822036 Jan 15 06:21 /usr/local/lib/libglib-2.0.a

Here is error message while doing compilation:
./configure --enable-static-linking --prefix=/opt/syslog-ng-2.1.3
checking whether to enable TCP wrapper support... no
checking whether to enable spoof source support... no
checking whether to enable IPv6 support... yes
checking whether to enable SQL support... no
checking for pkg-config... (cached) /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.14... yes
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.4.0... yes (version 2.13.0)
checking for static GLib libraries... no
checking sanity checking Glib headers... yes
configure: error: static GLib libraries not found (a file named 
libglib-2.0.a), either link GLib dynamically using the 
--enable-dynamic-linking or install a static GLib

I have compiled glib-2.13.1 witn --enable-static option to get 
libglib-2.0.a library using gcc-3.4.6 compiler (same I am using for 
syslog-ng). Somehow syslog-ng is not able to find Static Glib during 

Any help will be highly appreciated.
