Error : /usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols: main (Not referenced yet! Probably due to -u option)

Hello all,

I am trying to build a shared library.

/opt/softbench/bin/aCC -c -g -Ae -mt +DAportable -z -fast -DXERCES_NEW_IOSTREAMS -I/opt/java1.4/include -I/opt/java1.4/include/hp-ux TestService.c
/opt/softbench/bin/aCC -g -AA +p -mt +DAportable -z -fast -DXERCES_NEW_IOSTREAMS -I/opt/java1.4/include -I/opt/java1.4/include/hp-ux -o TestService.sl TestService.o

First command executed succesfully and getting the object file generated (TestService.o: PA-RISC1.1 relocatable object)

And, I get the following error after executing the second command:-
/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Unsatisfied symbols:
main (Not referenced yet! Probably due to -u option)
*** Error exit code 1

My Makefile containg the below parameters
------------------------------------------
CCOMP = /opt/softbench/bin/aCC
CCOMPFLAGS = -g -Ae -mt +DAportable -z -fast -DXERCES_NEW_IOSTREAMS

CXXCOMP = /opt/softbench/bin/aCC
CXXCOMPFLAGS = -g -AA +p -mt +DAportable -z -fast -DXERCES_NEW_IOSTREAMS

LDFLAGS = -b +DAportable -Z -z -O
LD = ld ${LDFLAGS}

Machine specifics:-
HP-UX hpsd0803 B.11.11 U 9000/800 (tl)


Kindly suggest.
Thanks,
Abu

>/opt/softbench/bin/aCC

(Why are you using this instead of /opt/aCC?)

>I get the following error after executing the second command:

To create a shlib you need -b.

>LDFLAGS = -b +DAportable -Z -z -O

Why aren't you using this? (Also, you can remove both -Z and -z, they are ignored for shlibs.
