This pretest builds, installs, and executes with no errors and no
unexpected warnings on sparc64-sun-solaris9 using Sun's Forte C

usage: cc [ options] files.  Use 'cc -flags' for details

and otherwise SunOS 5.9 tools

I continue to have a problem with the command below
$ emacs -bg rgb:ff/f7/e9
Undefined color: "rgb:ff/f7/e9"

on my 8bit color display.  This works if run before Netscape (v7.0)
and fails if run after Netscape.  I believe that this is a problem
with the Sun X libraries.  The color in question *is* in the current
colormap (in fact, it is the background color of the window in which
I am composing this message) but emacs is not able to use it for some
reason.  I continue to try to find out why but I am not an X programmer
so it is slow sledding.
