I need some help.

As as we all have become painfully aware, I have not been able to compile Gem. I need to be shut up, and to thoes ends I am asking for some debugging help.

Heres the situation.

The configure script for Gem (Gem/src/Gnu/configure) tries to compile 
the following as an attempt to detect -lGL:

gcc -o conftest -g -O2  -L/usr/X11R6/lib conftest.c -lGL  -Wl,-shared -Wl,-export-dynamic -lXxf86vm -lXext -lX11  1>&5

And fails. When I try to compile removing the -Wl,-shared portion of the line I get success. What does this mean? I cannot remove this flag from the configure script because then the build will fail, right?
In short, If I trick the configure script to passing this portion, then will the build fail later?

My versions of compilers:
These are all that Gem needs right? is there anything else that I could install that might fix this problem?

Thanks for your help,
To help this meager and humble linux initiate,
