* Emacs dumps core on Solaris in function IMCheckWindow.
This was reported to happen when Emacs runs with more than one frame,
and one of them is closed, either with "C-x 5 0" or from the window
manager.
This bug was reported to Sun as
Gtk apps dump core in ximlocal.so.2:IMCheckIMWindow()
Bug Reports: 4463537
The bug is said to be "Integrated in Releases: s81_40" but there is no
Patch ID listed.
Installing Solaris 8 patch 108773-12 for Sparc and 108874-12 for x86
reportedly fixes the bug, which appears to be inside the shared
library xiiimp.so.
As far as Emacs is concerned, you can configure it with
`--with-xim=no' to prevent the core dump, but will loose X input
method support, of course.
Alternatively, you can configure Emacs with `--with-xim=no' to prevent
the core dump, but will loose X input method support, of course. (You
can use Emacs's own input methods instead, if you install Leim.)
* Building Emacs with GCC 2.9x fails in the `src' directory.
