I just wanted to report to other octave users about compiling Octave 1.1
on SunOS4.1.3 with Sun Fortran 2.0. If any Sun Compiler with version
number >= 2.0 is used, it stick library versions into the objects. So
the best way to compile Octave with the Sun F772.0.1 is to edit Makeconf
after the configure run and add values-Xs.o object from the Sun
Compiler objects to the list objects to be linked in FLIBS. So if
the Sun COmpiler resides in /usr/lang , then add
/usr/lang/SC2.0.1/values-Xs.o to FLIBS in Makeconf generated by
configure and then run make to compile the code.
John you could add this to the INSTALL.OCTAVE file of the source code.
