	find_libs - find pathnames of libraries

	find_libs [ -Lpath ...	][ -lname ...  ]
	find_libs -Help
	find_libs -VERSion

	The find_libs program is used to find the actual pathname of a library
	specified on a cc(1) command line.  This allows	cook(1)	to know	these

	The following options are understood.

		Specify	a path to search for libraries on.  If more than one
		is specified, they will	be scanned in the order	given before
		the standard /usr/lib and /lib places.	This is	like the same
		argument to cc(1), and the usual find_libs option abbreviation
		rules do not apply.

		Name a library to be searched for.  This is like the same
		argument to cc(1), and the usual find_libs option abbreviation
		rules do not apply.

		Give some information on how to	use the	find_libs command.

		Tell the version of the	find_libs command currently executing.

	All other options will result in a diagnostic error.

	All options may	be abbreviated;	the abbreviation is documented as the
	upper case letters, all	lower case letters and underscores (_) are
	optional.  You must use	consecutive sequences of optional letters.

	All options are	case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
	lower case or a	combination of both, case is not important.

	For example: the arguments "-help", "-HEL" and "-h" are	all
	interpreted to mean the	-Help option.  The argument "-hlp" will	not be
	understood, because consecutive	optional characters were not supplied.

	Options	and other command line arguments may be	mixed arbitrarily on
	the command line.

	The GNU	long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
	find_libs are long, this means ignoring	the extra leading '-'.	The
	"--option=value" convention is also understood.

	The find_libs command will exit	with a status of 1 on any error.  The
	find_libs command will only exit with a	status of 0 if there are no

	find_libs version 2.30
