i was able to compile under irix(after  adding
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <unistd.h>
to random.c and copying nlist.h locally)

but moving on to solaris, i get the following error from configure:

checking whether getpgrp takes no argument... configure: error: cannot check getpgrp if cross compiling

i don't understand why configure thinks this:

checking whether the C++ compiler (c++  ) is a cross-compiler... yes
checking whether we are using GNU C++... yes
checking whether c++ accepts -g... yes

because we have a std gnu environment

tomw@marvin 5% c++ --version
tomw@marvin 6% uname -a
SunOS marvin 5.6 Generic_105181-20 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-2

any clues?
