Hi Bert,
I sent the below message on Thursday, but it looks like my attachments were just slightly too large to be posted to the mailing list sans approval.
Did you get the message directly and have any ideas??

Hi Bert,

I got ahold of gcc4 from Blastwave, installed it, placed it in my path and ran the following (for the recursor):

# CXXFLAGS=-I/opt/boost/boost_1_40_0 ./configure

Attached is the error, it doesn't seem to even compile now.

For the authoritative server, looks like it runs into similar problems, I've attached the errors from ./configure and from gmake.  

You mentioned you have a Sun Fire T000.
Any chance you could provide the exact environment and syntax used to compile and install the aforementioned packages?  

Sorry to be a bother!
Thanks Bert,

We too have a Solaris 5.10 Sun Fire T1000 (kindly donated by Sun!).
However, we find that compiling using gcc/g++ 3.3 does not generate
binaries that perform too well (or even work at all). The warning
about -pthread being unknown is a stront hint.

If you could avail yourself of a newer gcc, it is likely that the
authoritative server will compile and work too.

Good luck!
