Solaris 11 Sparc / Studio 12 Compile issue

Hi Guys

	Finally got everything built.

Scott: Your -library=stlport4 was the issue in the XMLTooling CXXFlags.
You have to make depclean AND remove the config.cache or it will ignore the flag when added later.

Had to use gmake on XMLTooling and OpenSAML. Not ideal on the Solaris platform but the job is done.
Now to see if it's done joined up thinking and make it all work.

Thanks for your help :)

I believe that bug is a possible indication you're using the wrong STL, the one that Sun includes by default.

So I would suspect CXXFLAGS isn't set to override that with

Otherwise no idea. That code section has been problematic on Solaris but I built it successfully on every copy I had once the const_casts were added.
