arrgh, will I ever get this right? Volkers Solaris8 box
(SerNet-solaris8) is passing ldb builds now too. The failure wasn't
due to C99 initialisation after all. My Solaris8 box (sun1) is
still failing. We must have different compiler revisions??
When it comes to Solaris, the OS release is a bit of a red herring: the
compilers are unbundled from the OS, and the language features available
depend on what version of the compilers you have.
The latest version of the Sun compilers ("Sun Studio 11") is a
free(-as-in-beer) download, and they support Solaris 8, 9 and 10.
