What release of Axiom are you trying to build and on
what version of solaris? Why did you choose to use

I am also trying to build Axiom from the September 2005 tarball:

on Solaris 8 sparc (280R dual cpu) system. If I simply follow
the instructions of:


You must set your AXIOM and PATH variables. Type:

To build the rest of the system type:

export AXIOM=/export/disk0/dmprod/axiom/mnt/solaris9
export PATH=$AXIOM/bin:$PATH
make AWK=gawk TAR=gtar PATCH=gpatch


The Axiom ./configure uses 'solaris9' even though my system
is actually Solaris 8. I don't think this a problem.

Although I have installed the complete GNU toolset, I did not
have any 'gtar' on my Solaris system. So in created a symbolic
link in /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin/tar.

In 'Makefile.solaris' it is clear that Axiom builds GCL with
the option --enable-locbfd.

But the build of GCL stops with the error:

gcc -c -Wall -DVOL=volatile -fsigned-char -pipe -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer
-I/export/disk0/dmprod/axiom/lsp/gcl-2.6.7/o -I../h -I../gcl-tk

I see from the following message that this is a known error:

I tried building gcl cvs again on solaris yesterday. Everything went
smoothly, except run_process.c uses SIOCSPGRP. On Solaris, this isn't
defined unless you include sys/sockio.h I just added that to
run_process.c and it compiles up nicely.

Perhaps you are also seeing this problem?
