I just tried again to build libssh2 on
- Solaris 10 (64Bit) with
- Sun CC (cc: Sun C 5.8 2005/10/13, CC: Sun C++ 5.8 2005/10/13)
- Sun ld (ld: Software Generation Utilities - Solaris Link Editors:
- GNU make 3.80
- OpenSSH 0.9.8b
- libz 1.2.3

It still didnīt quite work.

buildconf ran fine:
-- snip --
~/src/libssh2> ./buildconf installing `./missing'
src/ installing `./depcomp'
~/src/libssh2> cd ..
~/src> diff -rq libssh2.cvs/ libssh2/
Only in libssh2/: aclocal.m4
Only in libssh2/: autom4te.cache
Only in libssh2/: config.guess
Only in libssh2/: config.sub
Only in libssh2/: configure
Only in libssh2/: depcomp
Only in libssh2/:
Only in libssh2/:
Only in libssh2/: missing
Only in libssh2/src:
Only in libssh2/src:
-- /snip --

configure also worked (see attached file) but make did not.

It first failed when trying to build ssh2_sample.c due (see attached make
output). This was due to a missing include path which was easily fixed:
-- snip --
~/src/libssh2> diff Makefile~ Makefile
-I/digibib/tools/include -I/digibib/tools/include -I/digibib/tools/include

-I/digibib/tools/include -I/digibib/tools/include -Iinclude
-- / snip --
Afterwards another error popped up (see attached file make_output_2.txt) 
which I cannot resolve on my own.
