Subject Re: Apache 2.0.39 Compile error on Solaris 8 /sparc
Date Wed, 24 Jul 2002 18:48:51 GMT
is it possible you don't have write permissions in the output directory? 
   that would account for two different compilers being unable to create 
an output file ('conftest' is what is trying to create).

the configure script is just a sh/ksh script. if you grep for the error 
listed below 'cannot create' you'll see that it's trying to run the 
compiler, and that configure is passing the compiler a number of flags. 
it's possible you're environment is configured improperly and the flags 
are interfering with compilation.

you say both compilers gave you problems. what other compiler was giving 
you problems? and are you certain that the gcc listed below by the 
configuration output is the gcc that you think it is? you can define the 
environment variable CC to be the full path to your compiler, and that 
full path will be used by the configure script:

### in a CSH environment
setenv CC /full/path/to/gcc

you should see '/full/path/to/gcc' echoed by the configure script.. put 
whatever the full path to the gcc binary is in place of '/full/path/to/'

I downloaded and installed gcc-2.95.3 which I hoped would solve the compile problem but I
am getting the same error and am not sure what to look at. I have been through the FAQ and
am searching the archives etc for something, but nothing is working yet. What I get is below.
