  Thanks for your responses. I checked with gcc version. It is as

# gcc --version

gcc (GCC) 3.3.2

I also checked if ncursers library are installed as suggested by Henk
.They are already installed. Even then the problem is not solved

# cd /usr/local/lib/

# ls -l | grep libncurses

-rwxr-xr-x   1 bin        127772 May  2  2003 libncurses++.a*

-rw-r--r--   1 bin        464320 May  2  2003 libncurses.a

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root           15 Feb 20  2004 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root           17 Feb 20  2004 ->

-rw-r--r--   1 bin        339008 May  2  2003

-rw-r--r--   1 bin       4255308 May  2  2003 libncurses_g.a

The earlier version of Erlang (R8B)on the same system is :

"Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.1[source]

Eshell V5.1"

I have attached the /erts/config.log file

Please let me know the version of erlang compatible with SunOS 5.8
Generic_108528-29 sun4u sparc SUNW, Ultra-2.

It would be of great help.

It seems as you are trying to build open source erlang for Solaris 8.

Check the file erts/config.log and see what went long. The size of

short being 0 is not right - it should be 2 or 4. All others are

also wrong. They should be 4 or 8. Maybe your compiler is not

correctly installed. It should be gcc. What does "gcc -- version"

tell you?

In short; this looks as a secondary error, the primary error

occurred earlier.

I know we had the same problem, but I can't really remember what the

solution was to this problem - I think it was the ncurses library. make

sure it's installed, and then retry.... just a guess.
