It's the other way around - libgdi.so is the symlink you're creating  
to the existing _gdi_.so.

That's strange - I wonder where that "-dynamic" came from?  That's a  
linker option, and this is just a compile step.  That may be what is  
causing the unhelpful error.

Theory of the Universe

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly  
what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly  
disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely  
inexplicable.  There is another theory which states that this has  
already happened.
