[Buildroot] libidn problem

is anyone else using curl and running into a problem with libidn.so?

My link line ends up with this: /usr/lib/libidn.so
instead of the proper path under buildroot. I am not linking to this directly,
but it appears to be a libcurl dependency.

libcurl's config.log indicates that it could not find libidn:

cannot find -lidn
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I'm not sure where it comes from but I do have libidn.* in /usr/lib under
binaries etc for my target.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
