hello everyone,

i'm back at this ... and i haven't gotten too much further.

firstly i have (seemingly) successfully installed rrdtool 1.2.9.
and installed all the correct perl modules and YET ... when i do
a configure under orca

the exact command is:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local

i get this ...

checking if Perl module Data::Dumper version 2.101 is installed... yes
checking if Perl module Date::Parse version 2.24 is installed... yes
checking if Perl module Digest::MD5 version 2.19 is installed... yes
checking if Perl module Math::Interpolate version 1.05 is installed... yes
checking if Perl module RRDs version 1.000401 is installed... no
checking if Perl module Storable version 2.05 is installed... yes
checking if Perl module Time::HiRes version 1.38 is installed... yes


i thought, ok no problem, i'll build rrdtool 1.0.40 which comes
with orca.

the instructions say:
1) do a sh configure (a ./configure does the same thing)

the output is:

checking host system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.9
checking target system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.9
checking build system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.9
checking for a BSD compatible install... config/install-sh -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking for perl... /usr/local/bin/perl
checking for shared library extension... so
checking for the C compiler perl wants to use to build its modules... configure:
 test: unknown operator -B/usr/ccs/bin/


please help me ... i REALLY don't know what to do next!
