Note that traditionally OOo had been building/working very well on
Solaris, but these days there's only very little and seemingly
occasional initiative to keep that up. Therefore, Solaris-specific code
in LO likely keeps rotting over time.
At runtime, the idlc executable needs the libuno_sal.so.3 dynamic
library to resolve the rtl_string_new symbol (and others). Therefore,
idlc contains an RPATH (see "readelf -d solver/unxsogi.pro/bin/idlc") so
that it finds it *in an installation* ("$ORIGIN/../../ure-link/lib",
where in an installation idlc is in sdk/bin/ and libuno_sal.so.3 is in
However, idlc is also called during the build, where idlc is in
solver/unxsogi.pro/bin/ and libuno_sal.so.3 is in
solver/unxsogi.pro/lib/. To make that work, idlc is called with an
LD_LIBRARY_PATH that contains solver/unxsogi.pro/lib during the build.
This is taken care of towards the end of
solenv/gbuild/platform/com_GCC_defs.mk (gb_Helper_set_ld_path) and
should work for Solaris.
To see what's going wrong, run "make VERBOSE=t" to see the command line
of how exactly idlc is called to "[build IDL] udkapi/com/sun/star/idl".
