Hi Everyone,

I'm submitting this one because etc/MACHINES says Solaris is supported.

I'm building on Solaris 11.3 using x86_64 per [1]. I use
'--build=x86_64-sun-solaris' because Autoguess chooses 32-bit instead
of 64-bit (even with CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS including -m64).

  $ ./configure ...
  checking for xcrun... no
  checking for GNU Make... gmake
  checking build system type... x86_64-sun-solaris2
  checking host system type... x86_64-sun-solaris2
  configure: error: Emacs does not support 'x86_64-sun-solaris2' systems.
  If you think it should, please send a report to bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org.

But according to etc/MACHINES:

  $ cat etc/MACHINES

  ** Solaris

    On Solaris it is also possible to use either GCC or Solaris Studio
    to build Emacs, by pointing ./configure to the right compiler ...

Recently I've not had much luck building Emacs using the Studio
compiler.  I don't know if it's a problem with Emacs, Studio, or
Solaris, and I haven't had the time to look into it.

For what it's worth, I built and ran Emacs master with Oracle Developer Studio 12.6 on Solaris 10 sparc with these commands:

../emacs-28.0.50/configure CC=cc --with-jpeg=ifavailable --with-png=ifavailable --with-gif=ifavailable --with-tiff=ifavailable --with-gnutls=ifavailable

I needed the "ifavailable" options because those libraries aren't available on Solaris 10.

If you're still having problems with Studio please file a bug report when you have the time. I did just now fix a problem on OpenIndiana (which needs "#include <gmp/gmp.h>" not "#include <gmp.h>") so if that's what you ran into it should be fixed now.

The original bug that prompted this bug report seems to have been fixed so I'm taking the liberty of marking this bug as done.
