23.0.92 builds fine on:

In GNU Emacs 23.0.92.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.8, Motif Version 2.1.0)
 of 2009-03-31 on risksun2
Windowing system distributor `Hummingbird Ltd.', version 11.0.100015
configured using `configure  '--x-includes=/usr/openwin/include:/usr/dt/include:/usr/local/include:/usr/local/X11/include' '--x-libraries=/usr/openwin/lib:/usr/dt/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/X11/lib' '--with-x-toolkit=motif' '--with-jpeg=no' '--with-gif=no' '--with-tiff=no''

However, there is a bad interaction between M-x man and mouse-sel-mode.  This is not new; it's just the first chance I've had to isolate it.  Do:

emacs -Q
M-x man RET sh RET C-x 0

To get the sh(1) man page up.  Scroll down to SEE ALSO and NOTES section and move point to bol of a line in the NOTES section, eg, of the line beginning "Words" below:

SEE ALSO
     intro(1), bc(1),  echo(1),  getoptcvt(1),  kill(1),  ksh(1),
[blah blah blah]

NOTES
     Words used for filenames in input/output redirection are not
     interpreted   for   filename   generation   (see  File  Name

Now do mouse-1 on an entry in the SEE ALSO section, eg, intro(1).  I see a new window with selection showing the intro(1) man page (and point has moved in the sh(1) man page window to the intro(1) entry).  Fine so far. 

Now move point in the sh(1) man page window back to bol in the NOTES sections as before.  Do M-x mouse-sel-mode RET and repeat the mouse-1 on an entry in the SEE ALSO section, eg, intro(1).  I see an error in the echo area:

error in process sentinel: No manual entry for Words.

It seems mouse-sel-mode has commandeered mouse-1 in some way.  The tooltip I see when I hover over an entry in the SEE ALSO section, eg, intro(1), has not changed however.
