Guru's
<p>Thanks to Rachel P. and John D. for their help.&nbsp; Simply put, I
needed to install the binutils package.&nbsp; After that, all was fine.
<p>Thanks!

<p>Original question:
<br>&nbsp;
<p>Guru's
<p>I am sure I will get a few lashing for this question, but I must ask
anyway.&nbsp; I have searched the Sun Managers
<br>Summaries Archives with no luck.
<p>I am attempting to compile several programs ( sudo, openssl, and openssh
) but, each time I try, I get the
<br>following error messages ( or some very similar variation of these
).
<p>inet_aton.c: In function `inet_aton':
<br>inet_aton.c:117: warning: subscript has type `char'
<br>inet_aton.c:128: warning: implicit declaration of function `isascii'

<p>My guess is that I am using the wrong "as" and that my path is wrong.&nbsp;
I read somewhere that you must use
<br>the one with gcc, but I cannot find any other "as".&nbsp; I had to
use the pre-compiled version of gcc for similar
<br>reasons as described above.&nbsp; Is it possible that "as" was not
included with this package?&nbsp; I got the package
<br>from sunfreeware.com.
