 Hi Torbjorn,

 I discovered that Solaris and SCO both retired Ranlib several releases
 back as it was replaced with the  "ar" with the -s option.  I was able to
set variable RANLIB="ar -s" and process the configure once again.
 I am not an expert by no means, but reviewing the config.log file this
 time, it appears to have a problem with some of the variables in
 confdefs.h.  I have attached the config.log file once again.  You did help
 me the last time as I was able to locate a substitute for ranlib.

 Thank You.
