i try to complile fcgiwrap from http://nginx.localdomain.pl/wiki/FcgiWrap on solaris 10 platform

however i got this error msg

# make
gcc -std=gnu99 -Wall -Wextra -Werror -pedantic -O2 -g3 fcgiwrap.c -o fcgiwrap -lfcgi
ld: fatal: library -lfcgi: not found
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to fcgiwrap
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [fcgiwrap] Error 1

any idea how to fix it? thanks.

First check to see if you have a libfcgi install via any packages already:

grep libfcgi /var/sadm/install/conents

If grep finds anything you should try to use the command line option "-R" to set the runtime shared library path to the directory that contains the libfcgi.*so* shared library. See "man ld" for details on the "-R" option even though you need to pass "-R" to gcc since gcc runs ld for you.

If grep doesn't find anything you need to install a libfcgi. Possible source of this are:

1. the Sun Solaris 10 companion CD or DVD. Check the sun web sites that you get Solaris 10 from for this. It might also be available via http://companion.sunfreeware.com/ Package name is SUNWfcgi

2. OpenCSW or Blastwave. Use a search engine to locate them. The package is CSWfastcgi and I'm inclined to believe that Blastwave has it but OpenCSW does not.

3. Sunfreeware see sunfreeware.com I don't know the package name if any.

4. source code http://www.fastcgi.com/dist/

Even after installing libfcgi you will still need "-R" as above.
