Configure script fails when run for 32-bit bit lib on Solaris9:


checking if X/Open network library is required... no

checking for gethostbyname... no

checking for gethostbyname in -lnsl... yes

checking for strcasecmp... yes

checking for windows.h... (cached) no

checking for winsock.h... (cached) no

checking for winsock2.h... (cached) no

checking for connect in libraries... cannot find connect

configure: error: cannot find connect function in libraries.



Configure completes without errors when run for 64-bit libcurl on the
same box. 64-bit libcurl has been built successfully.


Configure completes successfully for 32- and 64-bit libcurl and the
libraries are created on another Solaris9 box with newer compiler.


Failure box:

Any suggestions are welcome.
