I can't find the binaries for this and the 'build' process fails when it
If anyone knows where the binaries for this might be OR has successfully
built it on AIX.4.3.2 I'd be interested.

Be sure you have the latest bos.rte.bind_cmds fixes.
gcc 2.95.1 is the GCC/EGCS release. From the release announcement
August 19, 1999
The GNU project and the GCC/EGCS developers are pleased to
announce the release of GCC version 2.95.1. GCC used to
stand for the GNU C Compiler, but since the compiler supports
several other languages aside from C, it now stands for the
GNU Compiler Collection.
I am relatively new to Solaris. I am trying to compile a tool called
gtkwave-1.3 on a solaris 7 box. I am much more used to Linux and BSD.
Anyways, the place where it dies is linking some helper command line
applications which require zlib. There were zlib libraries (static
libz.a and libz.so) already on the machine, but the libz.so needed
a dynamic libc. So I got this error:
ld: warning: file libgcc_s.so.1: required by /usr/lib/libz.so, not found
I figured it was because the /usr/lib/libz.so needed libgcc_s.so (yes I
can read an error message). So I searched the whole filesystem and
there is no such file as "libgcc_s.so" or anything close.
So I thought, now I really am confused.
So I then tried to force link with libz.a instead of libz.so, first by
renaming libz.so (yes, this was bad, but if the system has no
libgcc_s.so, any app trying to load libz.so would fail anyways), then
relinking. No luck.
So then I figured both libz.a and libz.so must be screwed, so I decided
to rebuild them from sources. So I did a download of the zlib binaries
from www.sunfreeware.com, and those didn't work, so I did a build from
zlib sources (configure, make test, make install). Now I have libz.a in
/usr/lib, but attempts to compile a program that uses libz.a ( gcc
option -lz) dies with this error:
bash#gcc -O2 -lz -o mvl2lxt mvl2lxt.c lxt_write.c
Undefined first referenced
symbol in file
Why is this happening? I have a valid libz.a in /usr/lib/libz.a
What am I doing wrong? Besides being a clueless Solaris Newbie. Help!
