i tested the latest configure on cygwin, FreeBSD/alpha, Solaris/SPARC
and IRIX. 

I will upload the output (config.log, config.status and output of
./configure) to:
http://mitglied.tripod.de/AndreasLange/igrass/index.html FYI.

As i generated the output in the last days, only the IRIX part is
identical with the latest CVS. 

The gd lib is still not recognized correctly on cygwin, solaris and
irix. I think the configure tests for the wrong function, if i override
the #ifdefs in the code i can compile a fully functional PNGdriver on
cygwin (without changing anything else). So i can at least narrow down
that it is not the missing gdImagePng function in libgd. 

On cygwin i have the problem with the postgresql modules that the
Gmakefiles have $(XEXTRALIBS) as dependencies, which resolves to -lipc
on cygwin, which causes an error. Is it safe to remove the $(XEXTRALIBS)
from the dependency line?

Please use the files on the above page for reference and ask for any
other info you may need.
