Hello Experts,

I'm new to Erlang...

I built Erlang on Solaris 10, with the following configure command:

$ ./configure --enable-threads --host=sparc --build=sparc-sun-solaris2.10 --without-ssl erl_xcomp_bigendian=yes erl_x
comp_linux_nptl=yes erl_xcomp_linux_usable_sigusrx=yes erl_xcomp_poll=yes erl_xcomp_putenv_copy=yes erl_xcomp_gethrvtime_procfs_ioctl=yes erl_xcomp_clock_gettime_cpu_time=yes erl_xcomp_dlsym_brk_wrappers=yes

When the make is completed, I observed the following issues:

1. Erlang was build in both sparc-sun-solaris2.10 and sparc-sun-sunos4.1.1. Does anyone know where sunos4.1.1 was coming from? The binaries in otp_src_R14B/bin/sparc-sun-solaris2.10 and otp_src_R14B/bin/sparc-sun-sunos4.1.1 have different sizes;

2. I wondered if erl was not built correctly. Two erl files were found:

-rwxr-xr-x   1 ligr01   etsi         937 Nov 12 16:24 otp_src_R14B/bootstrap/bin/erl
-rwxrwxr-x   1 ligr01   etsi        1448 Sep 13 12:00 otp_src_R14B/erts/etc/win32/cygwin_tools/erl

For my understanding, erl should exist in otp_src_R14B/bin directory.

Thank you,
