This message is a follow up to one I sent to emacs-devel
last July:


The question had to do with why emacs wasn't using dldump()
to produce the dumped executable under Solaris. It had been using it
up until 2002, at which point it was commented out, and it wasn't
clear why. No one knew the reason, and the consensus was "try it and see".

Since then, I've done some work to integrate emacs with
OpenSolaris as a standard package. I turned on dldump(),
and have been using the emacs binaries built with it daily
since July without issue.

So now, I have some things I'd like to send back up stream
and get integrated into the emacs distribution:

        - Man pages for things installed to /usr/bin that didn't
          already have a manpage:
        - Small changes to config.guess and configure to properly
          detect amd64 hardware running Solaris.
        - Use dldump() instead of the generic ELF dump code
          under Solaris.
        - Use the system malloc under Solaris (at least with
          amd64, emacs crashes without this).

The manpages can be viewed at:


and the patches at:


The patches are for emacs 22.1. I've examined 22.3, and the
changes are applicable there as well. If 22.1 diffs are OK,
that's easiest for me, but if not, then please let me know what
I need to supply. These diffs are all very short, affecting a
small number of lines in each file.

So my questions: How can I go about submitting these changes?
Is there someone who might work with me to get this done?
What format would you need to get them in, and where can
I send them?


- Ali
