Solaris 6 is pretty ancient (1997!) so I'm not surprised it doesn't work...

Problems with lib/cvsapi are for the next release now as we're frozen 
for this release.  I need to separate/replace all the GPL stuff so it's 
replaced with LGPL/BSD (since cvsapi is LGPL it currently can't use the 
lib replacement functions).  The whole thing needs a bit of 
restructuring anyway.

ltdl.h is in the libltdl directory & should be addded automatically if

I don't expect cross compiling to work...  not something I'm even able 
to test or have any idea of the requirements.  AFAIK it would have to be 
a static build (which doesn't currently work).
