I believe these errors go away if you compile with GNU Make -- it
seems we've picked up that dependency along the way. You'll also find
that the test suite doesn't compile on Solaris in 1.8.8 because we're
using some BSD-derived functions and not linking to the socket
libraries. There's been some work fairly recently to get the Solaris
builds working better in the development branch, but that's still
on-going. (Most notably the cairo-trace tool needs some attention to
make it less linux specific, and I hope that'll get done in time for
the next stable release 1.10 as well.) Anyway, for your problem,
switching to GNU Make should sort you out.
