Here is another report:

I have successfully built the Axiom Silver build.improvements
branch on a Sun 280R (sparc, 64bit) Solaris 10 06/06 system with
a full GNU toolchain installed.

bash-2.05$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.1.1

bash-2.05$ ld --version
GNU ld version 2.17

bash-2.05$ make --version
GNU Make 3.80

bash-2.05$ awk --version
GNU Awk 3.1.5


I built and installed GCL separately from the Axiom build.
I really like this option. :-) I think it makes the whole
build easier.

bash-2.05$ svn co \

bash-2.05$ svn co \

bash-2.05$ tar xzvf

But it wasn't quite so easy... A patch is necessary to build GCL.

bash-2.05$ cp gcl-2.6.8pre gcl-2.6.8pre_orig

Probably the GCL build should to be updated to properly detect at
least the two major toolchain configurations on Sun Solaris systems:
Sun native and GNU. Over time, these seem to be converging but there
are still significant differences.

Apparently GCL must be built in its own source directory. When I
tried to build GCL using lndir to ghost the source tree, GCL built
and ran but it would not properly perform a compiler::link function.
It returned an error message contain ~A format character where a
file name should have been. 

bash-2.05$ cd gcl-2.6.8pre
bash-2.05$ ./configure --disable-emacsdir --disable-tkconfig \
                       --disable-tclconfig --disable-xgcl

bash-2.05$ nohup make&

bash-2.05$ tail -f nohup.out

bash-2.05$ su

bash-2.05# make install


Some patches were also necessary to the Axiom sources.

bash-2.05$ cp \

To work around problems with X11 include file paths in the first
part of the build, I set the following environment variable:

bash-2.05$ export CPATH=/usr/openwin/share/include

"CPATH specifies a list of directories to be searched as if
specified with -I, but after any paths given with -I options
on the command line."

A better solution might be to include the 'AXIOM_X11_CFFLAGS'
variable in the CFLAGS option in those builds that reference
the X11 libraries and include files. Something like this:

bash-2.05$ diff -Nau \
