findutils-4.2.9 did not build on UNICOS 9.0
findutils-4.2.10 had a compilation problem with EOVERFLOW
AND re-introduced a bogus LIBS=-lsun into the find/Makefile
See bugid #11220 for more details.

You can download a release of findutils in which this problem is
fixed from ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/findutils.

The releases on alpha.gnu.org are for testing purposes, so please
take the time to download the release and verify that your
problem has been solved.  Once the release has been sufficiently
tested, it can be uploaded to ftp.gnu.org for everybody to use it.

I believe that this problem is fully fixed in release 4.2.7, could you check please?

I'm removing the dependency of bug #1100 on this bug, because although this is a defect, it doesn't prevent a build, I think.

It seems that the generated Makefile under UNICOS 9.0 on a cray
y-mp el is producing LIBS=-lsun -lsun and there is no libsun.a on
the machine. This is likely some kind of autoconf bug in the
way that 'AC_CHECK_LIB(sun, getpwnam)' works on UNICOS.

I will be attaching a .tar.gz file with the output of
./configure > mdb.config.log 2>&1
make > mdb.make.log 2>&1
