Compiling xlock under Solaris 2.5.1

I have recently installed Solaris 2.5.1 and am in the process of
recompiling many applications.  I easily compiled X11R6.3, but am having
problems with xlock.

This is the linker error that I am receiving:

        LD_RUN_PATH=/opt/local/X11R6.3/lib gcc -fpcc-struct-return -o xlock
        -O2      -L/opt/local/X11R6.3/lib xlock.o hsbramp.o usleep.o
        resource.o hopalong.o qix.o life.o image.o blank.o swarm.o -lXext
        -lX11   -lm -lsocket -lnsl  xlock.o: In function `error':
        xlock.o(.text+0xf44): undefined reference to `sigmask'
        xlock.o(.text+0xf50): undefined reference to `sigmask'
        xlock.o(.text+0xf5c): undefined reference to `sigmask'

        xlock.o(.text+0xf68): undefined reference to `sigmask'
        xlock.o(.text+0xf78): undefined reference to `sigblock'
        xlock.o(.text+0xfc8): undefined reference to `sigsetmask'
        make: *** [xlock] Error 1

The problem is that I can not find the object library which has these
objects in them.  Can anyone help out here?

sigmask and the ilk are not actual system calls under solaris,
but are rather #defined macros.  You need to include <signal.h>
in xlock.c to solve your troubles.

I was able to solve my problem, before seeing this answer. This
answer is not correct. It is apparent that the person who answered this problem did not actually try to compile
xlock on a Solaris 2.5.1 machine to reproduce the problem, but
just gave an answer, which is wrong.

Then by all means answer your own question.

I don't feel the "experts" have a responsiblity to try out their
advice; especially considering there is little to gain, and I
for one simply like helping people.

Perhaps what you really desire is a consultant?
