Getting Sanger-release.2000_07_14 To Compile On Solaris 2.6

We've had problems with aceserver not running under inetd on Solaris 2.6/2.7 but
never with what you describe below (as far as I am aware...).

Please can you do several things:

1) send me the output of "uname -a" on your machine

2) tell me which binaries you tried to compile and run

and we'll take it from there. (send the stuff direct to me)

cheers Ed
