Hello all,

I am trying to compile BIND-9.4.1-P1 on desktop system but encounters
some problems. These are settings of my desktop :

Platform : SUN Sparc
Os : Solaris 8
Gcc : 3.4.6

These are compilation parameters I am using ...

/usr/bin/env  \
    CC="/usr/local/bin/cc"  \
    CXX="/usr/local/bin/c++"   \
    CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe"  \
    INSTALL="/usr/local/bin/install -c -o bin -g bin"  \
    INSTALL_DATA="/usr/local/bin/install  -o bin -g bin -m 444"  \
    INSTALL_PROGRAM="/usr/local/bin/install  -s -o bin -g bin -m 555"  \
    INSTALL_SCRIPT="/usr/local/bin/install  -o bin -g bin -m 555"   \
    AUTOCONF=/usr/local/bin/autoconf \
    AUTOHEADER=/usr/local/bin/autoheader  \
    AUTOIFNAMES=/usr/local/bin/ifnames \
    AUTOM4TE=/usr/local/bin/autom4te \
    AUTORECONF=/usr/local/bin/autoreconf \
    AUTOSCAN=/usr/local/bin/autoscan \
    AUTOUPDATE=/usr/local/bin/autoupdate  \
bin:/usr/proc/bin:/usr/X/bin:/usr/ucb \
-L/usr/local/lib/gcc/sparc-sun-solaris2.8/3.4.6/libgcov.a" \
    SHELL=/bin/sh  \
    CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh  \
    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/etc/named
--localstatedir=/var --disable-ipv6 --disable-linux-caps --with-libtool

Now what I am trying to do is getting a binary 

    dynamicly linked to libraries like,, BIND
    but including statically GCC and OpenSSL precompiled object files


The reason why I am trying to do this is just because all our
Operational Production Servers are installed with basic restrictive Sun
Solaris 8 version without any installation of GCC, OpenSSL libraries. 

Can somebody help me because I can easily get full dymanic libraries
compiled binaries ( dig , named ... ) but cannot get what I just
explained above. I tried to compile configure command explained above.
This is all compiling good but when I try to run binaries I get "Killed"
message on the console. When trying to debug system calls 'truss dig' I
do not get anything on my console.

Many thanks if somebody could help me compiling these binaries ..
