New submission from Paul:

Trying to compile Plone (3.0.2) on a Sun V880 (SunOS genome 5.10
Generic_125100-05 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-880).  Plone is a web
application which runs on the Zope framework. What fails is the python
(2.4.4) which is distributed with Zope.

During the configure step of the build, I receive the following warning:

*****BEGIN Snippet*****
configure: WARNING: sys/wait.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: sys/wait.h:     check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: sys/wait.h: see the Autoconf documentation

Then this nasty error breaks the entire config:

******BEGIN Snippet

See `config.log' for more details.
******END Snippet
