Hi Maciej, (and Ben)

Thanks for your answer. So far, I have been looking for other IRC 
servers to install on Solaris, I am currently quite unsuccessful (always 
a quirk or another that causes it not to compile easily).

If anybody has had any successful experience building an IRC server on 
Solaris, I'd love to hear about it. It is certainly feasible, I am sure.
Just needs some more work ;)
