I ran into this problem with the later test versions on Solaris 9. Joshua
Goodall gave me a two line patch (which i don't have here, I'm afraid) to revert
this check which came in around test43 (from memory).
A check of the list archives finds his recommendation was to use
src/lib/restrict-access.c revision 1.13 from CVS.
The issue is still outstanding, it seems.
Timo - I have a few Solaris 9 boxes, and will happily perform whatever tests
