Dear SWISHers:

With Bill's generous help, I have managed to solve the problem I was having
with segfaults on Solaris 2.5 and 2.6.  The source of the problem was a bad
link to </usr/local/lib/>.  To fix the problem, I did the following:

1. made sure I was using the Solaris ld (/usr/ccs/bin/ld) instead of the GNU
ld (/usr/local/bin/ld).

2. cleaned all libz's out of /usr/local/lib (rm /usr/local/lib/libz*)

3. rebuilt zlib 1.1.4 as a shared library
	./configure -s (the -s is important)
	./make test  (they passed)
	./make install

4. rebuilt and installed libxml2
	./make tests (they passed)
	./make install

5. rebuilt and installed swish
	./make test (they passed)
	./make install

With many thanks andbest regards to the SWISH community,
