The rethinkdb source contains a specific version of the v8 code
and names it external/v8_3.30.33.16.

It's not the v8 port on the system I refer to.

Thanks for your hint with the clue-bat.

The makefile of rethinkdb creates the ...a file with

ar crsT 

which is different from

ar -r

I'll change the creation of the .a files and report back.
