Error compiling C++ on UNIX: Roguewave libraries

I'm trying to compile C++ executable on UNIX using the makefile.  C++is rouguewave compatible so we are using roguewave libraries.

Here's the part of make file that poitnt to the libararies:

RWTAG       = m
RWROOT      = /opt/sourcepro/5_2003/6.2_patch5_32
RWINC       = -D_REENTRANT -mt -D_RWCONFIG=${RWTAG} -I${RWROOT}
RWLIB       = $(RWROOT)/lib
RWLIBS  =      -L$(RWLIB) -lm -ldl -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m
SUNPROLIB   = $(SUNPRO)/lib
SYSLIB      = -lsocket -lnsl
HOMEDIR     = $(HOME)/lib
HOMELIB     = -L$(HOMEDIR) -lcleandb -ldbaccess \
              -lrndcommon -lrndservice
ALL_LIBS    = $(SYSLIB) \
                    $(RWLIBS)

During the compilation I get the following error:

-lsocket -lnsl  -L/opt/sourcepro/5_2003/6.2_patch5_32/lib -lm -ldl -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m -L/home/aserebry/C++/lib -lcleandb -ldbaccess  -lrndcommon -lrndservice
ild: (argument error) can't find library arguments :: -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m

What does this error mean?  Can you please pinpont me why do I ge tthis error.  Do you I have to change something in the makefile or there is problem with the libraries.

Please let me know if you need more info.  
Thaks in advance for your answer.

Are you sure these files exist? According to the naming conventions, I guess the names actually are are libdbt53-m.<ext> and libtls77-m.<ext>, so

RWLIBS  =      -L$(RWLIB) -lm -ldl -libdbt53-m -libtls77-m

should actually read

RWLIBS  =      -L$(RWLIB) -lm -ldl -ldbt53-m -ltls77-m

Thanks for your help!

You're welcome :o)

As a rule of thumb: The linker aguments have to be of the form -l<archive> with the library being named lib<archive>.a - see tne manpage:

       `-larchive'

       `--library=archive'
           Add archive file archive to the list of files to link.
           This  option  may  be  used any number of times.  `ld'
           will  search  its   path-list   for   occurrences   of
           `libarchive.a' for every archive specified.
