I see.  We can obviously put in a little one-off configure magic to
toggle awk and the -p flag to nm.  But how difficult is it to build
gcl on solaris using GNU tools?  This is the environment to which I
have access when testing solaris builds.

Are these the only two solaris issues?  What about GNU make/solaris

This is correct.

Our goal is to overhaul the configure/make system with automake after
ANSI compliance is achieved.  Unfortunately, there is a lot of cruft
in there now, and replacing it will require much testing.

Your feedback is much appreciated!
