Weird stuff, The 'rc' however are flags to the 'ar' command which
is supposed to run here. I.e:
ar rc  /.../libz.a All the dot.o files

Looks like some kind of configure error. 

Hmmmm .... I just talked to some of the other bluetail guys here
who built erlang 47.4.1 on solaris 2.7 a couple of months ago
and they said something about adding /usr/ccs/bin to the path.
(We don't have solaris 2.7 here any longer so I can't try it out)

Try that.

By the way, what about the version numbering on Solaris ...
gets me pretty confused, solaris 7.0, 5.7 and 2.7 are all the
same or what ???
