But the problem is with libtool at compile time. libtool looks at the
comand line and substitutes -lsdp with /usr/local/lib/libsdp.so
explicitly (I will never really understand why the autotools use such
black magic). Since the software uses it's own autotool script I'm
hacking it's ltmain.sh to teach it to behave regardin libsdp.so. This
should definetly fix the problem.

It's getting time because ltmain.sh looks like obfuscated code to me and
I also am very busy these weeks so i can devote only little time to the
task(and another port I maintain also asks for attention...)
