RE: [coreutils] coredump segmentation fault using coreutils 6.4 sparc so

Hi Jim,

Sorry about this hand holding but I have no experience with this.

I ran 
(cd coreutils-8.7 && ./configure && make && make -k check ) >& log

In the zsh shell and it was much more successful this time.

But what do I do know? How do I create the a coreutils package that I can add 
using pkgadd?

I'm reading the INSTALL and README files but its confusing.

It's good practice to check the signature (that's what gpg --verify does), but 
probably no big deal in this case.

Then you're probably using a C-shell.
Either run a bourne shell (bash or zsh) or as a last resort, replace each "&&" 
by ";", as you did -- but note: that changes semantics.

As it implies, you need to install a C compiler first.
I suggest you get gcc.
