Does it *still* pass the tests, or was that just a year ago? This is a
way-old version of nab, and it looks like NABHOME was not set at the time
you installed it. You may want to just go to
to get a current version.

Who are you going to believe, gcc or your lying eyes? Seriously, I am
stumped; if you are sure that /lib/libsym.a is present, (with proper
permissions?) but gcc thinks it is not, I don't have a suggested solution.

Note that the command apparently found /lib/libnab.a but not /lib/libsym.a.
Check to see if there is anything different about these two files.

What *are* your values for NABHOME and PATH? You might think it is "right",
but it might not be. As I said above, it looks like you installed NAB with
an empty NABHOME variable.
