When building the TurboVNC Server as a 64-bit binary on Solaris, the resulting version of Xvnc will start but will not run a window manager. For instance, attempting to run twm and nothing else in the ~/.vnc/xstartup.turbovnc file results in:

twm: another window manager is already running on screen 0?
twm: unable to find any unmanaged screens

The 32-bit binary for Solaris works fine, as do the 64-bit Linux binaries. A thorough code review revealed two possible issues that affected only the 64-bit Solaris code, but fixing them did not fix the problem.

    Fixed in current pre-release build. The problem was that _XSERVER64 was not being defined by the build system.
