Well, they do document the "-fwriteable-strings" option, but they don't
mention anything about the "hardwired" dependencies on Sun compiler options
under 64 bit Solaris.
For instance, unless you include "-x none" as a compile flag, the c4gl
script will insert a value for -xarch which is specific to the 64 bit Sun C
compiler, but an error for gcc. Also, I have found it necessary to add
"-m64" as a flag under 64 bit Solaris I didn't find either of these in any
Informix documentation, and IBM/Informix tech support was not very helpful
for these issues. In fact, they were a little bit demeaning, suggesting
that we really had no business trying to use gcc, in the first place, since
it isn't supported.
