@node Linking with -lX11 fails, , Problems building Emacs, Compiling and installing Emacs
@section Why does linking Emacs with -lX11 fail?
@cindex Linking with -lX11 fails
@cindex lX11, linking fails with
Emacs needs to be linked with the static version of the X11 library,
@file{libX11.a}. This may be missing.
On OpenWindows, you may need to use @code{add_services} to add the
``OpenWindows Programmers'' optional software category from the CD-ROM.
On HP-UX 8.0, you may need to run @code{update} again to load the
X11-PRG ``fileset.'' This may be missing even if you specified ``all
filesets'' the first time. If @file{libcurses.a} is missing, you may
need to load the ``Berkeley Development Option.''
@email{zoo@@armadillo.com, David Zuhn} says that MIT X builds shared
libraries by default, and only shared libraries, on those platforms that
support them. These shared libraries can't be used when undumping
@code{temacs} (the last stage of the Emacs build process). To get
regular libraries in addition to shared libraries, add this to
@file{site.cf}:
@example
#define ForceNormalLib YES
@end example
Other systems may have similar problems. You can always define
@code{CANNOT_DUMP} and link with the shared libraries instead.
