  It's not a FreeRADIUS problem.

  That's unnecessary.  Please don't do that.

  Or, just edit src/modules/rlm_sql/drivers/rlm_sql_mysql/Makefile

  The "configure" script is just there to catch the common cases.  If it
doesn't work, the "Makefile" *is* text, and *can* be edited by hand.

  Again, warnings are not errors.

  You've managed to install libgcc in a location where the run-time
linker can't find it.  This is a gcc/solaris problem.  It's NOT a
freeradius problem.

  See "man crle" on Solaris for how to fix it.  e.g.:

$ crle -l /path/to/directory/containing/libgcc -u

  If you don't have libgcc.... install it from sunfreeware.

  I installed libgcc from sunfreeware, gcc, libiconv, and a bunch of
other things.  I read the documentation on sunfreeware, to see what
other packages were needed by the packages I wanted.  I downloaded them
all, and installed them all.

  The problems you're running into are strictly Solaris.  You would see
them if you tried to build *any* Open Source software from the source code.
