I attempted to upgrade my ISC DHCP installation to dhcp-4.1.1b1 this past weekend, and ran into the following configure error:
$ ./configure –prefix=/bits/software/dhcp-4.1.1b1
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /bin/ginstall -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for gawk... gawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no checking for gcc... gcc checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out checking whether the C compiler works... yes checking whether we are cross compiling... no checking for suffix of executables... checking for suffix of object files... o checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... unsupported checking for style of include used by make... none checking dependency style of gcc... none checking how to run the C preprocessor... /lib/cpp configure: error: C preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check See `config.log' for more details.
Th config.log had a number of errors similar to the following:
conftest.c:11:19: stdio.h: No such file or directory conftest.c:12:23: sys/types.h: No such file or directory conftest.c:13:22: sys/stat.h: No such file or directory
Which are due to missing system headers. I reviewed the list of packages that were installed, and sure enough SUNWhea (this package contains the various header files) was missing. I installed this package as well as a number of others:
$ pkgadd -d . SUNWhea SUNWbinutils SUNWarc SUNWgcc SUNWgccruntime
$ pkgadd -d . SUNWlibsigsegv SUNWgm4 SUNWgnu-automake-110 SUNWaconf
Any everything compiled and installed perfectly.
