configure fails on solarisConfigrure fails to run a test problem. When I
came across this it was the LD_LIBRARY_PATH that was wrong.
Keep in mind that configure is a script which fork execs a new shell. If the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not pointing to the right places (libz, readline, etc)
configure will fail.

Modify your .profile or the file your ENV variable points to, to include the
right path LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Hope this helps.

  I'm trying to run configure on Solaris.  At line 13509, conftest fails.  I
hope someone can suggest what the problem is.

  I'm not running it as root, but as the user teprpg01 in a group that has
write permissions to the directory tree.

  Here's an excerpt from config.log with the error at the end (I snipped the
