After running ./configure it hangs after apprently detecting OS version. On debugging I have found that the version of ~/build/shtools (yes, I know its supposed to be portable ;-/ ) will not run on Solaris 9. Downloading, locally building, and replacing the shtool binary resolves this problem.

What version of shtool worked for you? The latest? (IIRC, it's 2.0.0 or something like that..)

Yep 2.0.1. 

Incidentally the ./configure will also try and use the Solaris 
native version of 'lex' if it finds it first. Really need to 
ensure it finds 'flex' instead (reorder $PATH).

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

Snapshots of the sources are packaged every three hours; this change
will be in the next snapshot. You can grab the snapshot at
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

shtool is now 2.0.1 in all branches. Other issues will only be fixed in HEAD. (5.1-dev)
