One thing that was fixed after 1.8.x was a little bug that caused some odd
errors on Solaris.  It had to do with with the configure script and grep.

I would suggest you move to 1.9.x instead of the 1.8.x tree.  If you don't
want to move or can't move to that version, simply remove the '-q' in the
grep line in the ./configure script.

Hope that helps!  Cheers!
