Hi, has anyone gotten R9B-0 to install on SuSE Linux 8.1 ?
Here is what happens when I run configure:

olive:/mnt/home/erlang/otp_src_R9B-0 # ./configure
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

configure: error: Cannot handle this combination of int/long/void*/size_t

This is the version of gcc:

olive:/mnt/home/erlang/otp_src_R9B-0 # gcc -v
