Hello all

I'm new to Unix and have been using MRTG on WinNT and bought a Sun Solaris Ultra Sparc 10 to Runn RRD on.
However I am having dificulty in getting it to compile. I get this error after running make

# make
Making all in cgilib-0.4
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/Nettools/rrdtool-1.0.7/cgilib-0.4'
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc  -g -O2 -Wall -pedantic  -o librrd_cgi.la   cgi.lo  -lm 
rm -fr .libs/librrd_cgi.la .libs/librrd_cgi.* .libs/librrd_cgi.*

make[1]: *** [librrd_cgi.la] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/Nettools/rrdtool-1.0.7/cgilib-0.4'

and the OS is Solaris7
when i type perl -V i get

If this helps

I have tried installing various libarys and get similar problems when running make.

I know its probably a Unix Libary problem but could some one please tell me what I need to do or install to get this to work.

Or even better still does some one have a precompiled version or know of where to get one.

All help greatfully appreciated
