[Mono-devel-list] compiling on solaris 9

I have built on Solaris 8 - using Sun's compiler (Forte 7) - both for sparc
V8 and sparc V9.

However from the error message I assume you are using gcc which I haven't

I do have a small change for IPV6 inet addresses (the headers don't have all
the options for s6_addr) but haven't replaced it in CVS because I need to
check it is OK for other platforms. But it doesn't sound like you have hit
this (or the messages are buried in other ones).

That's not to say I don't get a bunch of warnings (implicit casts between
unsigned * and int *) but no errors.

My guess is this something to do with socklen_t myself.
