I know that it works on sparc-sun-sunos4.1.2.

Dave, did you use gcc or the standard compiler?

With --disable-dynload you have to use --enable-static-rnd=egd or ..

I thought we agreed on that  /bin/echo "....\c" :-(
Okay, I use now a shell function which checks the behaviour of echo
(taken from configure)
