I'm not sure which vicious build scripts you are referring to, are these gnome scripts?

Anyway, libxml2 will build on Solaris with minimal effort. Take a look at:

To see the build parameters I use when building on Solaris. That might be helpful. Alternatively, if you are on Solaris 8 or later, just use the prebuilt binary packages.

I get the following error when vbs gets up to the gnome-xml compile stage;

line 88 there is

#ifndef SOCKLEN_T
#define SOCKLEN_T unsigned int

only possible explanation, at configure time you got SOCKLEN_T got defined
to an empty macro. Sounds like a configure problem, check your platform
settings, possibly ask on xml gnome org, there are Sun employees who
maintain the port, they may help debugging your specific problem.
