Yeah, we're on the EA program. Solaris 2.6 seems pretty decent so far,
I've had more troubles with gcc- web server performance in
particular is quite a bit better than Solaris 2.5.1, though I haven't
compared to 2.5.1+ISS. Anyway...

Well, the problem appears to be a bit more subtle than I originally
thought - I copied the db.h file to /usr/include just for kicks and the
configure script still doesn't find it! I had to mangle the db.h file a
little bit to get db-1.8.5 to compile with gcc- (problem with a new
int_types.h file - actually, I get warnings about it when compiling
zmailer too but no errors), but not too seriously. What can I do here?
