Yes. I built it at least once with no problems. The box had a lot
of other GNU tools available to it, but you definitely shouldn't be
getting errors for symbols such as chown on SunOS 5.5. I think that
I built it with gcc, but I thought that Sun's cc was supposed to work.
Those sound like pretty severe messages in the configure.log. Did
./configure run to completion without error? Can you tell which
portion of the configure script generates the error messages?
You could always try a make clobber and start over.
