I just tested on Solaris 10 with Sun Studio and encounter some problems with 
the test
scripts, e.g. contrib/mm/tests/

- on Solaris /bin/sh is not bash and does not understand subshell invocation 
with $(cmd).
  It would be good to use a replacement of $SHELL with the test scripts as 
automake inputs.
  This would allow packagers to choose a usable shell here without syntactic 
- the /usr/bin/grep on Solaris does not understand -Eqx as used e.g. in
  It would be nice to use $GREP here in a similar way as the shell above.

Best regards
