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 

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.
