I've been really busy, but I realized I needed to summarize. Here it is.
First, the solution. Following the solution is the original question:

I got the thing to work, bot the GUI and the command line. I originally got
the gtk+ and glib packages. They seemed to be missing some parts, but I'm
not sure what. So I downloaded the tarballs and then compiled and installed
them. That solved my problem.

One peculiar thing about nmap is that when I run it on some of my Sun boxes,
sometimes nmap affects inetd. It affects inetd by disallowing any new
connections. I have re-start inetd so new connections can be made. Any
ideas on why?


I was reading this article:
and went to part 2 of the article. It mentions a tool called nmap. I
downloaded it onto my E450 with Solaris 7 running, with gcc, glib, gtk,
etc., but I keep on getting the following error. What am I doing wrong?
