Compile Mod Security 2.5.9 on Solaris 10

Hi,
I am using Apache 2.0.63 which came installed with Solaris 10 (SPARC)

Some problems here when I tried to do a make. My options for configure was:
CC=/usr/sfw/bin/gcc CXX=/usr/sfw/bin/g++ ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/apache2/bin/apxs  --with-apr=
error was:
  :

i made a mistake as I pointed to the wrong path for gcc. Once corrected, I got a new set of error msgs

Well, the problem is your first statement. You need to compile the apache mods in the same manner
used by the apache executable. That is the whole reason for having libtool, after, to get the options and
choices to match.  So, you cannot use gcc to compile the mod, you need to use Sun Studio.

You can get it for free. There are several links on Sun's website. Here is one:

I am having major problems getting sun studio to run. Is there a way i can run sunstudio's compiler at cmd line?

Appreciate all guidance.. am a newbie with sunstudio.

Commented:
Actually, your last question confuses me, because the only way I ever run sunstudio compilers is from
the command line. So, yes, of course, you can run it from the command line. Just set your path appropriately and then type "cc".  You may be having problems with your path, because you may have more than on "cc" on your path.

hi blu, evidently, i have never used sunstudio before. ;)

1) I can't seem to find the CC with SunStudio (default path?)
2) sample command to use to compile at the command line.

Usually, the Sun Studio compilers install in /opt, in SUNWspro. So, the full path to the c compiler would be /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc and for the C++ compiler, /opt/SUNWspro/bin/CC.
The simplest command to compile a c program would be

/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc   -o main main.c

I hate to say this, but it doesn't seem to be working right - for the SunStudio method of running /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc   -o modsecurity modsecurity.c

By the way, the documentation in modsecurity website did  say to compile using ./configure
http://www.modsecurity.org/documentation/modsecurity-apache/2.5.9/modsecurity2-apache-reference.html#installation

Is there a reason or anyway to troubleshoot why I cant get it to work on mine?

I didn't say not to compile with configure, I just said to use the Sun Studio compiler. just add /opt/SUNWspro/bin to
the beginning of your path before you call configure, and otherwise proceed as you would normally.

Whoops.. totally misinterpreted..
well, i tried adding /opt/SUNWspro/bin to path. I now have a different error set:

ok, i solved it... just went into the Makefile and deleted all -Wall

Problem is, would there be any implications if i do that?rything looks ok so far...
