Subject Solaris Firebird 15 install problem with config.sub
Author dancingsailor2003
Hi, I am currently having a problem installing Firebird on unix
(solaris on sun sparc station).

I read the README.makefiles document in the doc directory, and it
gives instructions for linux:

autoconf
./configure
$cd src
$make > make.log 2>&1 ; cat make.log | grep -v warning > make2.log ;
vi make2.log


So, I am not in the root directory, but at this point I just want to
MAKE the firebird binaries.

in my current directory, I type:
autoconf

and I get some error messages.

167 stan:/export/home/philip/IE/Firebird% autoconf
configure.in:143: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
If this token and others are legitimate, please use
m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.in:144: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_LIBTOOL_DLOPEN
configure.in:145: error: possibly undefined macro:
AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL


then, I type:
configure

and I get more error messages :

168 stan:/export/home/philip/IE/Firebird% configure
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
configure: error: cannot run /bin/bash
builds/make.new/config/config.sub

So, it appears that it can't find the config.sub file. However, when
I extracted the firebird-1.5.0.4290.tar.bz2 file from
firebirdsql.org, I see that there is no config.sub file in the
builds/make.new/config/ directory.

Any ideas anyone┬ž

Thanks
