Subject [greenstone-devel] Configure Problems
Hello Greenstone developers:

We are attempting to install Greenstone from the source code on
Solaris 9 SPARC. With some help from this list, we managed the configure
step and have made some progress with the make. The latest snafu is all
the wide-character functions (wmemmove, wmemcpy ...) are undefined using
Gnu g++. (man pages include all of these wide character functions). We
currently are using the Sun ld which is configured with NLS disabled which
may be part of the problem. Several questions follow.

Is there anybody out there that has built Greenstone on Solaris 9 SPARC
that can advise of the "work arounds" that are needed?

Is a Linux box an easier installation process for Greenstone?

Any suggestions for handling the wide character functions that are
undefined as described above?
