Unable to build SDL_image on Debian Stretch

It seems that upon trying to compile SDL_image on Debian Stretch, I am getting a linker error. I am not sure why, but I think it could be because of GCC 5?

It seems to only effect 64 bit.

I tried to file a bug report, but it seems that I am not getting the confirmation email to create an account…

I am compiling with

export INSTALLDIR=/opt
./configure --prefix=$INSTALLDIR --libdir=$INSTALLDIR/lib/$(dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_MULTIARCH)

and I am getting the following output
