I too see this when using both --enable-shared and --enable-static.
However it seems to be Operating System and/or platform dependent.
Of the three systems I've built krb5-1.5 on, it happens on:

(1) OpenBSD3.9, i386 platform.
(2) SunOS5.10, i386 platform.

but it *doesn't* happen on:

(3) SunOS5.8, sparc platform.

They're all using versions of gcc, perl5 of some description and the
OS-native version of make.  But, as usual, I haven't a clue why two
should give this problem and one doesn't.
