Sorry not sure on how to do this.  Your assistance will be greatly

For a patch as simple as the one I posted, it's easiest to manually apply it (if you're unfamiliar with the `patch` program).

diff -u -r1.27 configure.in

-u means that it's in unified diff format.

--- configure.in        22 Feb 2004 22:17:41 -0000      1.27
+++ configure.in        24 Feb 2004 17:06:26 -0000

This part indicates that the old file was dated 2004-02-22 and is version 1.27 in CVS. The new file is dated 2004-02-24 and hasn't been checked into CVS yet.

@@ -199,7 +199,7 @@

The change affects 7 lines, starting at line 199.

  case "$host" in
-    extralibflags="-R$libdir"

This line is removed.

+ extralibflags="-R$libdir -lnsl -lsocket"

This line is added in its place. If you look closely, you'll see that it's just a matter of editing configure.in, going to line 199, finding the "extralibflags" line and adding " -lnsl -lsocket" to it. Based on other posts, you may need to add " -lm" as well.

      AC_MSG_WARN(Solaris install detected.  Using extralibflags for
linking: $extralibflags)

The other lines displayed are to help the patch program (or a person reviewing the patch or manually applying it) identify which section of code it affects.
