Yes, I see. That is certainly possible. The Blastwave gnu tools
binaries and libraries are in a non-standard location under

I've attached config.log (gz)

What I am running is technically not OpenSolaris but rather
Sun's Solaris 10.2 release. I found installation very simple.
Of course Solaris is still not as easy an installation as
most of the Linux distributions, but if you have been around
Solaris for a long time (like I have) then installing 10.2 is
comparatively much easier than Solaris used to be on some
Sun sparc hardware.

tries hard to be like what Debian is for Linux and I find that
for the most part it works very well. You should find the support
for x-86-64 binaries essentially the same as for the sparc
architecture. Actually it is mostly Blastwave that has lured
me back to Solaris after nearly giving it up for Linux. Perhaps
it is only nostalgia, but for enterprise applications I am still
inclined to prefer Solaris over any of the Linux distributions.
