Solaris 10 & Net-SNMP: fatal errors in make! Help?

Hi everyone
I am trying to install net-snmp on my solaris 10 box. I have downloaded the most recent stable source and extracted. Zlib, gcc, and openssl are installed. I am getting fatal errors on make, and really need help figuring out what's going wrong here. I appreciate any help you can give me!

I am running on x86 hardware, Solaris 10.

I ran configure and it was fine.The  command was:
./configure --with-mib-modules="ucd-snmp/lmSensors ucd-snmp/diskio" --with-cc=gcc
I also tried just ./configure with no options

Then when I ran make i got some errors. I attached the text i get after issuing make as a code snippet. Hope that helps!

I am terrible about figuring these things out. I could really use a gurus help! thanks so much!

Any reason you're trying to compile Net-SNMP when it comes standard with Solaris 10?

Hey Tintin

Well, yeah, a couple of reasons. I was having trouble getting the included version to work--I did some research and someone on the net said they compiled the new version and it fixed his issue. I wanted to have the updated version, and it's a good learning experience, too.

Or it was supposed to be. :)
What trouble were you having with the default Solaris version?  I have it running on a number of Solaris 10 boxes and have never had any problems.

Looking at the notes for net-snmp on, it says:

Compiled with:

./configure --with-mib-modules=host disman/event-mib ucd-snmp/diskio smux agentx mibII/mta_sendmail --with-cc=gcc.

It is important to read the README.solaris file in /usr/local/doc/net-snmp for some details on installation and potential problems with net-snmp and Solaris.
I had to compile net-snmp on Solaris 10 from source (in order to install mod-apache-snmp) and had similar errors.

Using GNU gcc fixed the problem. Download the latest GNU gcc (and prerequisite libiconv) from Make sure to update PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib appear before /usr/sfw/bin and /usr/sfw/lib, respectively.
