I think you may have that slightly backwards. Solaris supports IEEE
standards 1003.1 and 1003.2 (commonly known as POSIX.1 and POSIX.2).
The problem is that the configure script is not using POSIX-compliant
shell syntax. I complained about this before, and it got fixed, but
someone added more bash-style syntax in a later update. I've since
given up, and changed my build process to use "bash ./configure"
instead of just "./configure".
BTW. FWIW: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/817-0699/6mgfuai9q?a=view

I reported this a few months back also. Justin said it was on his
to-do list for qconf.
