Hi, PIL maintainers.

I tried out the PIL extension version 0.3a1 last night.  I've used a
Sun4/5 running SunOS 4.1.4_JL. I compiled the extension with gcc, and installed it in combination with Python 1.4 final.

To compile the source files and obtain `_imagingmodule.so', I needed to
edit `Imaging/Makefile' and `Imaging/libImaging/Makefile' manually,
since the configure script did not recognize the needs of the compiler
option `-fPIC' which make the compiler generate position-independent
code.  Moreover, I edited the former Makefile so that the linker `ld'
linked a shared form of the libjpeg-6a library (I also re-installed the
libjpeg-6a library, since I'd installed only `libjpeg.a').

I hope this message help you.  If these are already known problems,
please excuse me ;-)
