Does anyone have any information on how the solaris port of coda is
progressing?  On the configure script that I execute, it tells me that it
doesn't want to use a current version of libdb, claiming that certain
functionality will not be available for coda.  I'm really new to coda
and I am still trying to figure out the general way it works, but I am
wondering if efforts are underway to get coda to use NDBM rather than
UCB's db.  I am using the source tree obtained from coda's CVS repository.

I am interested in using coda as an NFS replacement for one of my
projects.  The network where coda is to be used it a heterogeneous one
however, including FreeBSD, Linux, OpenBSD, and a lot of Solaris.  I was
hoping someone could shed some light as to how the Solaris port is
progressing.  There doesn't seem to be any mention of Solaris in the

Here is the error that I get when doing make client-install on Solaris:

Does anyone have any suggestions?
