Happy new Year

I try to install Mono on Solaris 8 sparc

you need to change:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH

also may you have problem with /usr/ccs/bin/mcs a text sun tool, nothing to
do with c# compiler of mono. you have to delete or rename.

the libs needs are:

1. the Tar in Solaris in incompatible with Tar GNU in
http://www.sunfreeware.com get tar-1.15.1-sol8-sparc-local.gz
2. get the binutils-2.11.2-sol8-sparc-local.gz  install ang get the
sources binutils-2.16.1.tar.gz and install try with --disable-nls. it works

3. get the last Make make-3.80-sol8-sparc-local.gz and install
3. get the last GCC  gcc-3.4.2-sol8-sparc-local
4. libiconv-1.9.2 ftp://ftp.cs.tu-berlin.de/pub/gnu/libiconv/
libiconv-1.9.1 do not work
5. get gettext-0.14.5 bison-2.0 and m4-1.4.3 , you have to install M4 /usr
usr/local because bison search in usr. Remenber to make twice because
libiconv if you already done before put libiconv-1.9.2  or the getText
won't  work with  libiconv-1.9.2
6. install glib-2.9.0
7. now begins the problem, you need the ld from binutils or you get
error of ilegall ld options, the best solutions it's to isntall the
GCC but i think it's too complicate, and the trick it's to make ln -s
/usr/local/bin/ld /usr/ccs/bin/ld and try, but mono fails in Make process in
the mcs compilation
