This is really strange, I tried both 1.5 and 1.6 under Solaris 9 and both
terminate immediately. If I take the binary compiled on Solaris 9 to a Solaris 10
box it works just right. Most certainly this is not a compilation problem but
something on the code regarding portability on Solaris 9 which needs to be debugged.

It may also be connected to this bug I also haven't found yet:

Unfortunately I don't have time to investigate this myself at the moment.
Please talk to upstream at
I'll happily accept a patch to respin the package.

Best regards
