I tried building wdiff 0.5.90 from the alpha tarball on CentOS 5.4
with Sun Studio 12 cc and got the following failure. Perhaps the
tarball should get respun with proper time stamps on files?
The configure script has a set of "touch" commands that should set the
appropriate timestamps. I'm not sure why this isn't happening with
your build. I will test it on my system and report back.
Seeing as the release is in a tarball now, I could dispose of that
hack and set the timestamps properly in the tarball, but for now I
think I will leave it in so it builds properly for people that check
the code out of CVS.
Eventually we will fix the build system so it doesn't rely on files
having particular timestamps.
