configure fails on Solaris

configure, line 175:

test -n "$retval" -a -e "$retval"

However -e is not valid parameter for test for /bin/sh. I would recommend using -x instead of -e. -x is supported across sh, bash, ksh and csh (and probably others). Also 'which' is supposed to find binary, so testing for executable bit should not be a problem.

Thank you

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

That bug (it should'e always been -x as -e is doing something different) is foixed in the current OSE svn tree.
