OT - help w configure, make, etc.

With all the recent "what's appropriate for this list and wha's not"
issues, I didn't know if this was the appropriate forum or not since
it's not really a FBSD issue.  ESPECIALLY since I'm trying to get it to
configure/make on Solaris 10 x86.  See my recent post, but I though I
could get some help with the configure script regardless what OS - it's
"basic" shell/c programming stuff - but apparently over my head.  I'm
sure I could figure it out in another 60 hours, but don't really want to
spend that much time!

Why not `on list'?

This way we won't have to duplicate the efforts of all the previous
subscribers every time you describe what the problem is.

 I agree. This might benefit to others. I guess there are lot
of people out there that don't really understand make and config
so this could be a reference to all of them.

 I know (and agree) that everybody should RTFM but there are times
when the fine manual is just not enough and real world examples
provide a thorough understanding.
