OK - it looks like the -ltli library is not included in your link for
some reason, and you *may* also have some problems due to the age of
OpenClient and the use of Solaris 8 (OCS 10.x was created for Solaris
2.5.1, IIRC...).
Anyway - what we need to know is what the actual link line was, and if
that doesn't include -ltli then why this isn't included.
