C program previously compiled on Solaris need to compile on Linux

First let me preface this question and say that I am not a C programmer.  Never have been.  Code PERL, vbscript, & ASP well tho.  Have a situation where we are moving from Solaris to Linux and have a custom shared object that I cannot get to compile on Linux.  I've resolved all of the *.h file dependency error message, etc but now when I type "make" I receive the following and really don't know where to start troubleshooting...  Old system was Solaris 8 64-bit.  New System is ReHat x86_64-bit .  Please see output below.  Am looking for guidance to resolve the errors during compile.  I'm using the mozldap SDK and those functions '`ldap_init', etc should be in there.  I have setup my LD_LIBRARY_PATH and also the PATH variable to include all locations where the sdk files exist.   thanks for your time!

Seems like your missing the LDAP library - try adding '-lldap' to your linker switches.

Also change -G to -g
It adds debug symbols.

Your compilation command is:
/usr/bin/gcc -DLINUX -D_REENTRANT -I. -c getrpw.cpp

From the filename getrpw.cpp, I assume that, you have a C++ code.
So, try to compile using g++ instead of gcc.

And look at this error:
(.text+0x20): undefined reference to `main'
If you are using main() function in right way, you should not get this error.

Also, you should compile with correct library and use -lldap as somebody already pointed out.

Dhaest,

I feel that the, answers given were practical.
So, it will not be fair to just delete the question.

I added a comment.
Instead of pressing "Submit", I pressed "Object".
I didn't know that "Object" will remove the "Deletion Pending".
I didn't intend to do that and apologies for any problems that might create.
