I just downloaded emacs-19.22 and am trying to build it on a Solaris
2.3 system. The Sun C compiler generates lots of warnings about stuff
being too small in a bunch of X bitmap file includes, and then fails
to load because it can't find some library.
The calls it can't resolve look like they're part of a termcap/curses
library: stuff like tput() which the 2.3 man pages say are `obsolete'
or some such.
This is my first brush with Solaris, so I'm not sure whether the
system was improperly installed, or I'm missing some -l flag, or
And unfortunately, the system in question is rather inaccessible and
not on the net yet, so I can't give any more accurate diagnostics at
Is the Solaris 2.3 C compiler junk? I think I know the answer to this
one, but: Should I dump it and get GNU CC?
