  You have no -L option to gcc in that command line at all, so make
cannot expand '-lexecline' to './libexecline.a'. Something is messing
with your LDFLAGS; can you post your configure invocation and your
config.mak ?

  Yes, it is correct. EXTRA_LIBS is only used for things like -lsocket
and -lrt, on systems that need them.
