Cool and thanks!

Ok, but then let's work on getting it fixed. It does work fine on my solaris
2.7 on sparc, and I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work fine for you.

This happens when the test script doesn't get any output from running the
command line "../src/curl -V", which if things work fine of course should
return the full version string of the curl version in the build tree.

If you run 'make test' in the tree where you build curl manually, does that

I want it! You can either mail it to me privately (just cut off -curl from the
email address I use here), or you can provide the autobuild log to the
autocompile mail alias to make it appear on the autobuild page and thus
allowing anyone to read the log.
