[gdal-dev] gdal and Solaris 10

Ok, I've installed gcc and its dependences, but I can't figure out why I'm getting this error when I run make.  Any ideas?

(cd port; make)
make[1]: Entering directory `/export/gdal/gdal-1.7.3/port'
/bin/sh /export/gdal/gdal-1.7.3/libtool --mode=compile --tag=CXX g++ -g -O2  -Wall  -DOGR_ENABLED -I/export/gdal/gdal-1.7.3/port          -DHAVE_LIBZ -c -o cpl_conv.lo cpl_conv.cpp

Ok cool, yeah, I'm trying to build it on a Solaris 10 Sparc system now.  I believe I'm using the Sun compilers as well.  I'm guessing I can't just run the commands below without configuring a bunch of stuff?

% cd gdal
% ./configure
% make
% su

# make install
# exit

Build from scratch is best.  I've been running it on Solaris 10 / Sparc for 
years without problems.  I do not know whether there may be any issues on 
Solaris 10 / Intel, but I do dot see why there should be any.

My version is built using the Sun compilers.

Best wishes,
