These symptoms suggest that autoconf was run without
aclocal -I m4 being run beforehand.  Or perhaps a buggy
set of autotools was used; I would not trust the old tools
shipped with Solaris 10.

Chris, can you please run the distribution tarball that
I just generated from the latest trunk (bzr 107054)?
I used the latest tools, so this should avoid any problems
with old Solaris autotools.  The tarball is temporarily at:


You should be able to untar it and type these commands:

  ./configure --with-x-toolkit=lucid --with-gif=no
  uname -a
  gcc --version
  cat config.log

I just now did this on a Solaris 10 host, and it
worked for me; please see the attached shell transcript.
If it doesn't work for you, please run the same commands
and compare your transcript to mine.

Most likely that merely masked the real problem.

If INT_MAX > PTRDIFF_MAX, there's something very wrong with the setup,
and it's a good thing alloc.c caught it.  I expect the above procedure
will help us narrow the problem down.
