Test problem in installing octave, Solaris 7

Here we 're trying to install Octave version 2.1.34 on our unix system
Solaris 7, gcc 2.95-2, gmake 3.79.1
Beside some problems with "compiling" documentation it seems to work
with a warning (c++: unrecognized option `-rdynamic') which indicate
that the -rdynamic is not the real problem (no need to suppress it).
We do not follow the advices of Dr Andrew Bainbridge-Smith
(editing the config.h) or other (too complex for us) advices.

We tried the octave tests and we get two failures. Are
they important failures, and can we rely on octave results
and in which extent ?
