Many thanks for getting back. Some new information to add to the mix:
Imagine, if you will, that our openSolaris 10 x86 snv_134 is a very 'standard' install of the OS.
On top of it, we've added key packages from Steve Christensen's SunFreeware - into /usr/local -
and then favored those applications/libraries within the environment with:
This brought us to my last email: C compiler cannot create executables.
Stubbornly (and granted, academically at this point), we've been trying to find what tools may be missing, and have installed a few which may be needed - to achieve the build without SunStudio. All the usual suspects are there in /usr/local/bin: grep, ar, awk, gcc, sed, readline, perl - and ld. What other(s) may we be missing?
Still, could not get a successful compile.
- I did install SunStudio12u1 and, (you know where this is headed!)
PostgreSQL configures and builds beautifully! So, is it safe to assume configure is 'finding' one or more tools outside of /usr/local? Probably...?
...strangely, though, configure still reports it's using Solaris ld, even though --with-gnu-ld has been specified:
checking for ld used by GCC... /usr/ccs/bin/ld
checking if the linker (/usr/ccs/bin/ld) is GNU ld... no
- - - - But now, to make things a bit more complicated: The real point to the whole exercise:
Is to build and run PostgreSQL inside an open Solaris ipkg-branded zone. To effect this test, a simple zone has been set up with /usr/local as a loopback (lofs) device. Of course, this zone doesn't 'see' anything in the /opt path.
As in the root zone, configure starts to fail at about line 3316:
configure:3316: gcc conftest.c >&5
ld: fatal: file values-Xa.o: open failed: No such file or directory
ld: fatal: file processing errors. No output written to a.out
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
suggesting to me that I've got one or two utilities missing. I'll have to develop my script reading skills to deconstruct this; meanwhile... Hoping Zdenek or Bjorn will have an idea. Wonder if there's a way to direct configure to gnu-ld directly?
Yes, a very long email - but hopefully this will be useful to others moving down the same road...
Regards, Lou Picciano

In my experience? Yes.
However, cc'ing Zdenek and Bjorn who have way more Solaris-compile-fu
