If you want someone to help you, you are probably going to have to
provide more information, such as the series of commands that produced
the error above.  What *complete* compiler/linker command did make
actually run?

The link command should be

  libcruft.$(SHLEXT): $(CRUFT_PICOBJ)
        rm -f $@
        $(SH_LD) $(SH_LDFLAGS) $(SONAME_FLAGS) -o $@ $^ $(LINK_DEPS)

and LINK_DEPS should be defined as

  # include BLAS and FFTW just in case some of libcruft depends on them
  ifeq ($(INCLUDE_LINK_DEPS),true)

but it will only be defined if the INCLUDE_LINK_DEPS variable is set
to true (is it?) and even then, it should not include
The list of object files, CRUFT_PICOBJ should not include
either.  Perhaps SONAME_FLAGS is incorrect for your system?  What is
it defined to be?

If you think you've found a bug in Octave (including a bug in the
build process), please submit a complete bug report to the bug-octave
mailing list.  If you aren't sure what to include in a complete bug
report, please read the chapter in the Octave manual about how to
write a useful bug report.
