If the object file appcert is examining depends on libraries, those dependencies must be recorded in the object. To do so, be sure to use the compiler's -l switch when compiling the code. If the object file depends on other shared libraries, those libraries must be accessible through LD_LIBRARY_PATH or RPATH at the time you run appcert.
The appcert application cannot check 64–bit applications unless the machine is running the 64–bit Solaris kernel. Since Solaris provides no 64–bit static libraries, appcert does not perform static-linking checks on 64–bit applications.
The appcert utility cannot examine:
Object files that are completely or partially statically linked. A completely statically linked object is reported as unstable.
Executable files that do not have the execute permission set. The appcert utility skips such executables. Shared objects without the execute permission set are examined normally.
Object files whose user ID is set to root.
Non-ELF executables, such as shell scripts.
Solaris interfaces in languages other than C. The code need not be in C, but the call to the Solaris library must be.
