Hi, Bruce,

Good news is that I've found that the reason caused the compilation
error messages about signal.h header file I reported to you before - I
used GCC binary built on Solaris 9 x86,which has old header files to
work with. The error got fixed after using the gcc binary for Solaris 10
x86.

However, I got the new error messages when building Postgres 8.0 on
Solaris 10 x86, the error is as the following:

----------
gcc -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes
-Wmissing-declarations -I../../../../src/include   -c -o heaptuple.o

Could you please let me know why the above error happened when running
make, and how to solve it?

Thanks in advance for your help!


Happy holiday,
Jenny
