Are you saying here that the installation didn't happen, although
no error is shown?

I've seen that one myself.  Try gnu egrep.

Solaris 9, that's SunOS 5.9, right? If so:

I have virtually no experience on solaris 9.  Yet I was able to
compile rrdtool in a few hours, including working my way through
some issues that "real" solaris admins know.  As of yet (it is
running for a couple of days now) I didn't encounter problems.

I didn't install the libraries in the usual locations as I am just
a regular user of the system.  For freetype I did:
GNUMAKE=gmake EGREP=gegrep ./configure --prefix=~/c/libs
(and some more settings, to find 64-bit libraries)

I installed my libraries under ~/c/libs.  When I do
"find ~/c/libs -name libart-features.h -print" I find this file
here: ~/c/libs/include/libart-2.0/libart_lgpl/libart-features.h

Strange that this didn't work for you.  It certainly did work
on another box.  IIRC Tobi is also using sun, chances are it
works for him too.

When you find out why it doesn't work on your box, perhaps you
could report your findings here.  TIA.
