|To build a .so on Solaris, we needed to apply a patch to configure.ac which is included below. |
I am not quite sure how contribution of patches work for fltk, so submitting it as a bug with the requested patch here.

|Thanks for the report and the proposed patch. |
You can use the 'Post File' link in the STR form to contribute a patch, preferred in unified diff format (as you included it inline). svn diff, git diff, or diff -u are useful to generate such patches. svn diff has the additional advantage that it contains the svn (subversion) revision (otherwise you could mention it in the text).
See attached file configure.diff for reference.
Can you please tell us a little more about which version of Solaris needs this patch? Do you know since which version this is necessary?
I'm asking because the configure part your patch is changing is explicitly for Solaris, so when did it change? I'd like to add some info to the changes file for reference if you have it handy. TIA.

|Hi, I am trying this on the recent released versions of Solaris 11. I haven't tried it on older reeleases, and I am not sure if someone attempted it on earlier versions like Solaris 10. ||

|Fixed in Git repository. |
Fixed in commit 71eda122e8649df6f78e8972119c161c75a2056b.
Note that this is FLTK 1.4.0 (branch master). FLTK 1.3.x will not be updated with this patch.
