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:

$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:

and I get some error messages.

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

then, I type:

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

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

Any ideas anyone┬ž
