Problems in configure script - SPARC / Solaris 9 / -mv8
When compiling libvorbis on Solaris 9 SPARC, I found that the configure script would quit halfway through, complaining about a lack of 16 bit types:
"configure: error: No 16 bit type found on this platform!"
Clearly this is a bit crazy.
I had a look at the configure log and found that the -mv8 switch for gcc no longer exists. Removing it allowed the configure to complete and the compile to run through cleanly.
