64-bit goodness

[ #15536 ]
I finally managed to get a 64-bit Ruby installed on my Solaris box. After much gnashing of teeth and banging of head, the solution turned out to be....upgrade to gcc 3.3.2.

Not that it's faster or anything, I was just hoping that it would solve my largefile support issue with regards to procfs.h. It did, so that's good.

Now, to build a 64-bit Perl!

  • Now, to build a 64-bit Perl!

    This should be easy, even on gcc 2.95.

    Aaah. It all seems fun looking back on it.

    • I'm surprised, not only because there have been many fixes in gcc for 64-bit support on Solaris in the gcc 3.x series (from what I understand), but also because my builds always failed when I tried to do 64-bit builds. Obviously, I was doing something wrong. ;)
