If you're not compiling Gnome on Solaris for the fun of it, why are you doing it
at all? Have you seen http://www.sun.com/software/gnome/ or the Helix site or
http://sunfreeware.com of http://freeware4sun.com just for starters where you
can get Gnome binaries that work just fine? You can even get it on CD if you
get Solaris 8 Update 2(10/10) - it's on the Companion CD, along with
Enlightenment and lots of other things.
I compiled it coz I run Solaris 9 Alpha, and the Helix installer didn't like it.
And I started out compiling it at 0.50.2, so I'm used to the issues involved.
But I wouldn't do it otherwise.
Same goes for XMMS - there's a Solaris binary available from their website. And
the latest version for Solaris defaults to the Solaris audio output plugin, so
you can forget the ESD one ;O)
