Library search paths all messed up

Hi, I've been trying to compile a program (PlasticFS 1.9) for a while
now linked to glibc 2.3.4 in a non-standard directory.  Here is my set
up:

/home/vorpo/vorpo/usr/src/plasticfs-1.9 < -- my plasticfs source code dir
/home/vorpo/vorpo/Programs/plasticfs-orig-1.9 < -- my plasticfs target dir
/home/vorpo/vorpo/Programs/glibc-orig-2.3.4 < -- my glibc dir
/home/vorpo/vorpo/Programs/glibc-orig-2.3.4/lib < -- my glibc lib dir

I've chrooted into the /home/vorpo/vorpo directory as root, so my
glibc dir is /Programs/glibc-orig-2.3.4.  When I try to run plasticfs'
configure script, it fails:





thebeast:/usr/src/plasticfs-1.9#
CXXFLAGS=-L/Programs/glibc-orig-2.3.4/lib ./configure
--prefix=/Programs/plasticfs-orig-1.9
checking for g++... g++
checking for C++ compiler default output file name... configure:
error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.





PlasticFS is written in C++, so I'm pretty sure CXXFLAGS is the right
variable to set.  My LIBRARY_PATH=/Programs/glibc-orig-2.3.4/lib.

Here is what config.log says (it fails in the CORE TESTS section):





This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.58.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure --prefix=/Programs/plasticfs-orig-1.9

All of my toolchain (gcc, g++, cc, as, ld, etc.) has been compiled
statically, so there are no missing dependencies.  I have _no_ idea
where the /home/ersin/vorpo/Programs/glibc-2.3.4/lib/libc.so.6 came
from, since the directory it should be looking in is
/home/ersin/vorpo/vorpo/Programs/glibc-orig-2.3.4/lib.  I checked out
all my environment variables, but nothing looks wrong.  Is there
something wrong with chroot?

I am running a Debian testing system (sid) with kernel 2.6.8.  My shell is bash.

What am I missing?

Thanks,
Ersin
