SUMMARY: ssh-1.2.30 compile problem on Solaris 2.6

Thanks to all who replied. I made 2 changes and now have my ssh
compiled. I had been using gcc 2.95.2 which was installed from a package. We don't pay for the Sun compiler by default so
getting gcc in a package was my only choice. Also, trying to be heads up I
had set CFLAGS before running ./configure. In this case that could be
causing my problems since several replys indicated that using
-I/usr/include is a problem. Also mentioned was that someone has had
problems with gcc 2.95 so perhaps going back to 2.8.1 would help.

So....I uninstalled gcc 2.95 and put gcc 2.8.1 in it's place. I unset
CFLAGS and re-ran configure and then make. SUCCESS!!

Other things mentioned:

Use OpenSSH - I was installing SSH1 and SSH2 to have support for both as
one of our machines at the univ. level does. I wish I was a Unix only
admin so I had more time to spend on these things.

Use Google for searching:-) - I do but must not have worded my query quite
right to get the informative hits given to me.

Check this page:

several reports in SunMgr archive say that you, probably, have gcc not
properly installed.
Solaris2 FAQ also says that: - I
did search one of the archives available I must've picked the wrong one.
