Hi all,

One of the users of the Mercury compiler just reported that the
Boehm (et al.) collector fails to compile on a SunOS 5.5.1 system.
Has anyone here on the GC list encountered this problem with the
Boehm collector?  If so, do you have a fix or a work-around?

I run into problems to install this on a "SunOS 5.5.1 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-1" 
machine (see below). I didn't have any problems to install mercury on 
that machine before...
