  Hi Shawn,

  I haven't been able to reproduce your issue because your patch didn't 
include the libqmi package. However, it is very well possible that the 
issue is caused by running 'autogen.sh'. Is it possible that the libtool 
patch doesn't get applied? I see that libtool adds "-rpath /usr/lib" to 
the link command, and I believe the libtool patch removes exactly that.

  To create configure properly, you need to set _AUTORECONF to YES, as 
mentioned by Thomas. Unfortunately, that is not so easy...

- modem-manager uses gettext macros provided by the gettext package, so 
you need to add host-gettext to the dependencies. But host-gettext 
doesn't exist yet - I'll send a patch to add it.

- modem-manager requires gtkdocize to be run. We certainly don't want to 
add gtkdocize to buildroot. But since it just generates two files for a 
total of 350 lines, it's easy to add that with a package patch.

  Hopefully this will help you to solve the problem.
