it's asking for x11r5.  i think solaris 2.3 is x11r5, if you don't want
to build the libraries.  (which is worse ?  :)

also, are you using the compatibility libraries (ucb stuff)?  this won't
work in future versions of solaris.  i just got acedb ver 1-10 going on
my lx under solaris 2.1 without the compatibility library stuff, using gcc.
here are my notes on the subject:

notes re: compiling acedb.1-10 on solaris 2.1 and sparcstation lx with gcc?

1.  compile as SUNSVR4

2.  edit SUNSVR4_DEF and take out the include of the cygnus directory if
	you have installed the fsf distribution of gcc, but leave in 
	if you installed the cygnus distribution of gcc from the catalyst 
	cdware catalog.  (did you make fixincludes when you installed gcc? 
	-- required!)

3.  edit wmake/truemake and take out -I/usr/include

4.  in w1/timesubs.c, make sure that mytime_h strftime(...) is not defined
	(line 30)

5.  in w4/session.c, make sure that the semaphore definitions are not
	included (beginning at line 39), and put the following definition 
	into the file:

/*  definition not found in SUN/SOLARIS2/GCC2.4.5 fixincludes cgr 11/93 */
#if defined(SUNSVR4)
  union semun {
    int val;
    struct semid_ds *buf;
    ushort *array;
#endif /* defined(SUNSVR4) */

hope this all helps!
