On Solaris 8 I can also confirm this I mean I do not have
Any error message but without a link like following on 
Solaris 8 the installation of Kolab2 would not work:	

	# which cc

	# which gcc

	# ln -s /opt/sfw/bin/gcc /usr/bin/cc

	# which cc

Betreff: [Kolab-devel] cc problem in source installation of 2.0.1

Hi guys,

I have just hit a problem: I didn't have any cc. 

In other words, my debian was so brandnew that there was not the link
/usr/bin/cc -> /etc/alternatives/cc -> /usr/bin/gcc

I mean, it is very easy to verify in the beginning of the ombtool run if the

required binaries are present. Here, there was no such verification, and the

result was that a number of packages were installed, some others weren't and

after all, I could not go on and bootstrap kolab. 

It's highly misleading for somebody who is not so consistent with the unix 
procedures of error checking. There war no clear error message that pointed 
out that there was no cc available. 

In this sense I suggest that the development team may introduce some checks
the beginning of the ombtool.

Best wishes,
