20010122: McIDAS compilation fails at stnplot.k link (cont.)

I have had a chance to talk with our systems administrator about the
bus error you are seeing while linking an application in the McIDAS-X
build.  His immediate reaction was that there were a number of
patches from Sun that related to development environment issues.  He
even thought that he remembered a similar bus error here at Unidata
that was resolved by installing patches.

Here are his comments:

So, it is most likely the case that you need to apply one or more patches
to your development environment.

I hope that this helps...

Tom -

I installed the suggested patches (as well as a general cluster patch) and
recompiled with success!  Everything tested out and installed fine as
well.  Thanks to you and the staff for your help.
