Dear managers,

thanks to

and especially to

Koef <>

Solaris includes a strftime() function. It seems that the test for 
strftime in ./configure of hylafax is bogus.

int t() { strftime(); return 0; }
int main(){ t(); return 0; }

Koef suggested to comment out the test for strftime what I did. I had a 
similar problem with the TIFF library,so I comemnted this test out as 
well and then was able to build hylafax on Solaris 9 with ggcc 3.4.x. 
It was reported that these problems do not occur with gcc.3.x. However, 
I haven't verified that.

Thanks a lot!
