RE: Problem compiling from 2.1.14 on Solaris 8

I think the make is looking for bison now...  When I had these issues I dug
into the Makefile and it looks like ylwrap is used as a wrapper for flex,
yacc, and bison.  My system might have had bison on it already and that's
why I didn't need it.  Anyway, try installing bison and I think you will be
set.

I guess if we wanted to list all of the pre-requisites for building
cfengine, it would probably look like this:

1. OpenSSL
2. BerkelyDB 3+
3. Gnu M4
4. Gnu flex
5. Gnu bison
6. Gnu make (not 100% required, as Sun's make will work also)
7. Gnu cc

Did I leave anything out?  If you want I could send you a copy of the 2.1.14
that I compiled on Solaris.  I'm guessing you probably can't use that in
your environment though because it wasn't compiled in house... HTH.

Luke,

Thanks for all these pointers.  It's like you're anticipating what I'm
going to ask 
next.  Unfortunately, I've now moved on to a new error.

/bin/bash ../ylwrap cfparse.y y.tab.c cfparse.c y.tab.h cfparse.h
y.output cfparse.output -- bison -y  -d
got /tmp/cfengine/cfengine-2\.1\.14/src/
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `cfparse.c'
Current working directory /tmp/cfengine/cfengine-2.1.14/src
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all'
Current working directory /tmp/cfengine/cfengine-2.1.14/src
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-recursive'

I just can't seem to catch a break...

Paul,

After compiling 2.1.14 on one of my Solaris boxes, I used this great
gnutopkg script to turn it into a Solaris package for easy distribution
to
my other hosts:  http://www.bolthole.com/solaris/gnutopkg 

I also like having the binaries in a Solaris package format so that I
can
easily remove it if necessary with a pkgrm.  Hope this helps.

Luke

Thanks Mark.  I'll probably be able to figure this out in about 2
hours,

but if I package this up to install on my other machines, will I need 
flex and bison on those machines as well?  I wouldn't think so, 
but before I go through the packaging process, it would be 
nice to know.

Paul
