Following up to my own message, to tie up the solution within the 
archives.  Unfortunately I had to wing this one on my own, and after a 
week's worth of pain, I got there in the end.

I believe ultimately the problem was down to NFS, but the errors that I 
was getting changed over time from the ones I originally posted to errors 
stating that block x could not be written, and resource temporarily 
unavailable - but with no other indicators.  I must have tried about 30 
different compilations on both 7.1.3 and 7.2.

It was unfortunate (for this) that my home directory is mounted onto many 
machines and I didn't read anything about not running the database or 
backend on an NFS partition.

So, the check list for Solaris (5.8) seems to be:-

1) Read doc/FAQ_Solaris, and ensure that tests are performed over a TCP 
socket, and not a Unix domain socket.

2) Ensure that the shared memory and semaphore settings are high enough in 
/etc/system

3) Build and run the regression tests on local disc storage, and not NFS.

Optimisation flags are optional, but I've left them in now for hopefully 
faster response.

- Dave.
