I just found out that this was due to the libintl library. When I copy a
differnet libintl library from solaris 8 Sparc, everything works fine.
My question here is is there a way I can ask the binary to look out for the
library in a differnt location

now the libintl is looked in
 ldd /opt/soe/local/sudo-1.8.3/sbin/visudo
        libintl.so.8 =>  /usr/lib/libintl.so.8
        libiconv.so.2 =>         (file not found)
        libsec.so.1 =>   /usr/lib/libsec.so.1
        libc.so.1 =>     /usr/lib/libc.so.1
        libsocket.so.1 =>        /usr/lib/libsocket.so.1
        libnsl.so.1 =>   /usr/lib/libnsl.so.1
        libdl.so.1 =>    /usr/lib/libdl.so.1
        libmp.so.2 =>    /usr/lib/libmp.so.2
I plan to provide my a seprate libintl and place in in soem other directory
say /home/test.
Now at the compile time how do i make visudo to pick this library from
/home/soetest instead of /usr/lib
