The error happens in the example subdirectory, which, according to several comments in the makefiles, is not supposed to be built by default anyway.

 Did the update of xmlrpc-c on May 9th fix this... or cause it?

 I can't really tell. Recently, I was able to sync the source tree only 
 in larger intervals, as I had several other problems building on Solaris.

 But the problem seems to originate upstream. It is mentioned several 
 times in the original source files, that the examples directory should 
 not be build by default, and yet exactly this happens. BTW: Because of 
 this, I would not categorize this as Solaris problem. The problem just 
 happens to strike on Solaris, but it has the potential to cause failure 
 on other platforms as well.

 As far as I can tell it may have fixed the problem.  It just built for
 me on a fresh bootstrap of pkgsrc-current on solaris 10 x86 w/gcc (32
 bit).
 If you will be unable to test for a long period of time can we close this P=
 R?

 I was able to build the package unmodified. But I recommend adding my 
 patch anyway, because it is a waste of time to compile examples (that 
 according to the upstream documentation are bound to fail), and then 
 throw them away. And as a personal bonus: The dependencies seem to have 
 changed and I don't even need this package anymore...

 I'm going to remove solaris-pkg-people from Responsible, since this is
 not solaris specific anymore.

 I've cc'd Adam who has made all the recent changes to the package, who
 may be the right person to make the call on this patch.
