I'm having a hard time on Solaris and OpenSolaris building the libecl.so library
without text relocations against non-writable segments. This basically makes the
ECL library unusable on 64-bit Solaris/OpenSolaris.
I know the same issue arises with 3 library used by the stats package R if one
uses gcc, but the problem disappears if one uses the Sun compiler.
Hence I'm trying to build the latest git snapshot (downloaded around 1900 GMT on
28th October 2010) using the Sun compiler.
