httperf - successful compilation on SunOs 5.8!!!

I had a lot of troubles compiling httperf on Solaris. Thanks to Martin
Arlitt who provided hints I finally got a recepie that works for
Solaris. Here is what you have to do:

1) Download source from
( and
unzip/untar it.
2) change configure file at lines 541 and 542
Original text:

New text required for Solaris:
LDFLAGS="-lsocket -lnsl -lelf -lresolv"

3) run "configure"
4) make

That will do it!

1. STL map problem on sunOS 5.7, not on sunOS 5.8

I am experiencing a problem in which a hang is occurring while trying
to find a key in a stl map (it is never reaching the null at the end
of the map). When I run the code on a sparc machine with version 5.8
it runs fine. When I run it on 5.7 a hang occurrs. It does not matter
which version I compile on. Has anyone experienced anything like this,
or have any suggestions.
