Hi All,

I have been having difficulty trying to build FreeSWITCH 1.0.4pre9 and 

I am running on Solaris 10 Update 5 on x86 hardware (32-bit).

The build fails with:

--- snip ---
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-recursive'
Current working directory /export/home/user/packages/BUILD/freeswitch-1.0.4
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all'

Looking back through the build I can see the following error:

--- snip ---

-KPIC -DPIC -erroff=E_END_OF_LOOP_CODE_NOT_REACHED -errtags=yes

The following command caused the error:
`if test -z "" ; then echo /bin/bash 
/export/home/user/packages/BUILD/freeswitch-1.0.4/quiet_libtool ;else 
echo /export/home/user/packages/BUILD/freeswitch-1.0.4/libtool; fi;`

-lcrypto -lsocket -lnsl -ldl   -lcurses -lsocket
--- snip ---

Then a little above this error, there is the following warning that is 
displayed (I'm not sure if it is related):

--- snip ---
*** Warning: Linking the shared library libfreeswitch.la against the
*** static library libs/libedit/src/.libs/libedit.a is not portable!
--- snip ---

My configure line is as follows:

./configure --prefix=/opt/freeswitch

I have the complete configure and make output if anyone needs them.

Any help/pointers would be greatly appreciated.
