I've just installed rtf2latex2eUnix-1.0fc1 on
SunOS 5.8 Generic_108528-05 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-2

./configure will stop during execution because it
cannot find the host type.

I've changed the file "configure" line 823

previous
host_alias=$host

new

host_alias=$HOSTTYPE

and everything went fine.

Cheers !

    I added a modern config.guess, and it all seems to work now.

    I think just adding the line

    esac

    to the end of config.guess will also fix this.

    (indeed I think the missing "esac" is what causes the problem)
