Not true at all - that's what autoconf does for you.. it'll just compile 
a binary optimised for your system.  You need only gcc and the build 
tools (and those come by default on solaris 10 anyway).

If you want to generate something that matches the march hare 
distributions exactly then there are scripts for that and those have 
some dependencies.  Most people don't need that.

The reason why our builds are complex is we have to ship packages that 
work on all systems - so we have to build all the protocols that are 
available on the platform, make sure all the config files are in the 
right places, etc.  then build the package for distribution.   A simple 
local compile simply doesn't need to do that.
