It means no 'C' compiler is installed. That's normal for Solaris,
since the 'C' compiler is unbundled, and thanks to kernel modules,
you don't need even a minimal 'C' compiler to relink the kernel.
There's a simple, free solution: Solaris 8 includes gcc 2.95.2 on
the Companion CD.
Alternatively, you could buy Sun Forte 'C' or C++.
How's it supposed to get the respect of management if you've got just
one guy working on the project? It's much more impressive to have a
battery of programmers slaving away. -- Jeffrey Hobbs (comp.lang.tcl)
