Dear FW Tools listers,

I'm after some gentle guidance please on compiling GDAL on a Solaris 10 SPARC system.
I'd like to hook into PostGres/PostGIS as well as supporting as many other formats as possible (partic. ECW, JP2K, SID, HFA).
Up til now I understand that the GNU suite (gcc, gmake/make, etc) need to be referenced, and while the configure script runs fine, the make install does not. There is a terse reference to "you need to make changes to suit your system" which is great, but exactly what changes I have no way of knowing. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
