I'm sorry for my copy-paste error! "linpc1" is an openSuSE
Linux 12.1 machine.

You are right! Somehow a line continuation character disappeared
in my configure command for "sunpc", so that "status.log" didn't
show "--enable-debug". I have rebuilt the package for "sunpc" and
now everything works fine. I'm sorry for all the unnecessary trouble.
Thank you very much for all your help.

Kind regards
