Not true at all - that's what autoconf does for you.. it'll just compile
a binary optimised for your system. You need only gcc and the build
tools (and those come by default on solaris 10 anyway).
If you want to generate something that matches the march hare
distributions exactly then there are scripts for that and those have
some dependencies. Most people don't need that.
The reason why our builds are complex is we have to ship packages that
work on all systems - so we have to build all the protocols that are
available on the platform, make sure all the config files are in the
right places, etc. then build the package for distribution. A simple
local compile simply doesn't need to do that.
