Chris,

Please keep replies to the mailing list so that others may participate
and the answers will be available for those who search the archives
later.  Also I am actually traveling right now and so I will be really
slow responding for a while.

Ouch.  That message is being produced from one of the early autoconf
tests.  You would need to debug why your compiler installation is not
working first because obviously a working C compiler is required.

I am not familiar with Sun Freeware.  Others on the mailing list might
be however.  This is the bash mailing list at gnu.org.  It is
concerned with the development of the bash shell.

  http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/

Bash is one of the components of the GNU operating system.

  http://www.gnu.org/

Ports of software from the GNU Project are often made to other
platforms.  But usually not distributed as binaries from gnu.org.  I
will infer, perhaps incorrectly, that Sun Freeware is one of those
folks porting software to Sun.  If so then you would probably have
better luck contacting them directly with your problem.

Bob
