You probably have not installed g++
[rgroesb at shix01 rgroesb]$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/g++
[rgroesb at shix01 rgroesb]$

Above command is not correct.
It's something like:
./configure --with-dyn-modules="gmysql pipe pdns
xdb" -enable-verbose-logging --
enable-recursor  && make

> checking for g++... no

PowerDNS is mostly C++ code, so you will need that one.

Anyway, I have made a pre-RPM for deployment on our production machines to
when our Solaris PDNS services where up and running.
(Unfortunately I still have problems with recursor, pdns_recursor to keep on
running smoothly on solaris.
 Some strange things happen when I debug the code with GDB...)

If you need a kick-start on creating your own Powerdns RPM check out the
following location
and grab the files (.spec) you need.
