This may be a very simple fix, but so far I've found no solution.  Just
installed expat-1.95.5 in a FreeBSD 4.4 machine.  The install went fine,
and I verified that ldconfig had picked up the library:

host# ldconfig -r | grep expat
73:-lexpat.4 => /usr/local/lib/

However, I need to install other packages that require the expat
library, and the configuration fails stating that the expat library
cannot be found.  In fact, just a simple test fails:

host# ld -lexpat
/usr/libexec/elf/ld: cannot find -lexpat

I made sure any previous installations of expat were nuked and all files
deleted.  And the /usr/local/lib/ does exist:

higherinnovation# ll /usr/local/lib/
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  294728 Jan  3 19:44

If ldconfig has an entry for the library and is pointing correctly, what
is the problem?

Maybe I've just been staring at this for too long.....

Any help would be appreciated.
