is that because it's not looking in the right place ?

or should i look elseware ?
     The <dirent.h> header defines the following data type through typedef:

     int            closedir(DIR *);
     DIR           *opendir(const char *);
     struct dirent *readdir(DIR *);
     int            readdir_r(DIR *, struct dirent *, struct dirent **);
     void           rewinddir(DIR *);
     void           seekdir(DIR *, long int);
     long int       telldir(DIR *);


Option -Ldir for archive directories

The builder now accepts an option which forces the linker to search a given
directory for archive libraries. This allows the use of archive libraries
which are not
on the default path (usually /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib). This option uses
exactly the same format as does the linker itself, so that the operating
system documentation may be referred to for further details. The option
consists of -Ldir-name, where dir-name is the name of the directory which is
to be
searched for the archive.
