My guess is sysadmins. My experience is that Sun doesn't provide gcc out
of the box.
My experience with gcc on Solaris is that I must explicitly declare all
the lib paths at ./configure time, regardless of how "obvious" the
locations are, and even sometimes with LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or LD_RUN_PATH,
at compile time) set 'correctly'.
I'm working this a.m. on that buildswishe script, that tries to account
for all these paths automatically. I'll post it when I have a copy I'm
willing to show the world...
