Hi Tzafrir,

Played a little bit with the Solaris version.

The old problem with the path to install-sh is still there. A short
reminder of it:

Aftyer running

followed by:

gmake PREFIX=/path/to/install

the build process aborts when installing lib refreshd_cnt.a because the
path to install-sh is wrong.

This can be fixed by editing


and changing the definition of

INSTALL=../../.././install-sh -c


INSTALL=../../../../install-sh -c

I will try to investigate the causes of refreshd deaths.
