I am new at this, trying to install on a Solaris box. I ran configure with 
"configure --with-perl --with-python --with-openssl --enable-syslog".

and later with:
"./configure --with-perl --with-includes=/usr/local/include 
--with-libs=/usr/local/lib --with-perl --with-python --with-tcl 
--with-openssl --enable-syslog".

It died both times with an error message, after several seconds:
"configure: error:
*** Could not execute a simple test program.  This may be a problem
*** related to locating shared libraries.  Check the file 'config.log'
*** for the exact reason."

In the config.log file, this is the first sign of trouble. It is in the 
first "paragraph."
configure: In function `main':
configure:1408: `__CYGWIN32__' undeclared (first use in this function)
configure:1408: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
configure:1408: for each function it appears in.)
configure: failed program was:
#line 1401 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

I am not sure what is wrong. I saw a mention about the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but 
I don't know enough to know what to do about it. Also, it isn't my machine I 
am installing it on, so I am a little cautious.

Thank you for any help,
