How about checking it instead of relying on your gut feeling ?
Where did the "" come from you think ?
The Emacs source only does -lXaw3d, so even if we assume that the "lib"
and the ".so" are implicit, that still doesn't explain the ".5".

Because -L only provides the path to find the library at compile-time,
whereas -R provides the path to find the library at runtime.  Most likely
the library is already in /var/sadm/pkg/SFWxaw3d/ and you
simply need to add the corresponding directory either as a -R to the `ld'
command or to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH envvar.

AFAIK, 21.3 only fixes a few bugs and I haven't read anybody rave about how
buggy 21.2 is and/or how stable 21.3 is.  Could you report the bugs you see
in 21.2 ?
