Finally got some time to dig further into this.  The problem is
caused by configure thinking that the *netgrent functions don't
exist, which is incorrect.  The configure test script is being
compiled with the -static option, and the test program fails
with undefined sysmbols for _dlopen _dlclose and _dlsym since
there is no static (.a) version of libdl on Solaris, only the
shared (.o) version of the library.
   I got around this by just manually editing src/conf.h and changing

However, from looking through config.log it looks like other
system functions also end up undefined for the same reason.

I've also had to remove the -static flag from the makefiles,
change YACC to be defined as yacc (configure had defined it as
'bison -y' which evidently isn't completely compatible), and
add -lnsl to the linker flags.
  Now I'm down to one error in linking cfagent, which is:
Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
OPENSSL_add_all_algorithms_noconf   cfagent.o

A Google search seems to indicate that its picking up an
older (pre 0.9.7) openssl library, so I'll track that down
tomorrow.  With all the troubles I'm having, I'm somewhat
hesitant to actually install this when it does build.  However,
2.0.0 was previously built without problems on this same box.

Has anyone successfully built this on Solaris 8?
