Hi Paul,

thanx for taking into account my suggestions!

Today I took the beast.

Two things:

The make check fails, due to insufficient swap space
(disk misconfiguration on my side).

The m4 ist gnu m4 1.4.2 (see end of log file).

The enclosures contain:

 - typescript.gz: A log of all the configuration, compilation and test (trail)
 - config.log.gz: The config.log
 Hope that helps!

Absolutely right!

Well! I don't mint the way, how it is done!
If it is finally working that's fine!
And I agree, my hack was an awfull one :-)

If youd like to get additional infos or if you want me to
test other OS (SUN 32bit: Solaris8, OpenBSD 3.4, Open BSD 3.6
SUN 64 bit: Solaris8, Solaris9, OpenBSD3.4, Open BSD 3.6)
let me know!

looks pretty fine!
