[Buildroot] unable to make libglib12. error about missing libglib12.so

when compilling libglib12, configure output says


checking for /opt/arm-uclinux/usr/bin/arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-ld
-L/opt/arm-uclinux/lib -L/opt/arm-uclinux/usr/lib
--sysroot=/opt/arm-uclinux/ option to reload object files... -r
checking dynamic linker characteristics... no
checking if libtool supports shared libraries... no
checking whether to build shared libraries... no
checking whether to build static libraries... yes
checking for objdir... .libs
creating libtool

In ltconfig file, host_os is taken as arm_linux. I placed an echo for
host_os at line 1793 in ltconfig file.

echo $ac_n "checking dynamic linker characteristics... for host $host_os
$ac_c" 1>&6
case "$host_os" in

  Here it checks for Dynamic linking characteristics of this os (arm-linux)
and hence it fails the test. So it cannot build shared libraries. 

Can anyone shed some light on this. 

Should i add 


arm-linux*)                     ----> add this line. is this correct

Thanks in advance
