build -install ACE, TAO 1.4 on Solaris 9.

build -install ACE, TAO 1.4 on Solaris 9.

I am trying to build/install ACE 5.4 & TAO1.4 on Solaris 9.
I downloaded the current patch level of ACE/TAO(5.4a_p23) from the OCI website: http://www.theaceorb.com/downloads/1.4a/index.html
 and I am trying to follow the instructions provided

in this website:http://www.dre.vanderbilt.edu/~schmidt/DOC_ROOT/ACE/ACE-INSTALL.html#aceinstall ----
Using the Traditional ACE/GNU Configuration.

As per the instructions, I did a 'make' under $ACE_ROOT/ace and get the below error:

however, if I try running the CC string cited in the error by removing the repeated reference to libACE.5.4a.23, a.out is generated. But I am unable to find where in the GNUMakefile.ACE I have to make the correction.

Any suggestion or insights/tips into compiling ACE/TAO will help. Please let me know how you think I should proceed.
Are there any other sources (besides the commercial support) that can help with ACE/TAO build/install issues?

RE: build -install ACE, TAO 1.4 on Solaris 9.

I haven't used Solaris for 8 years.  What does -h on the cc line do?  On GNU, -H prints all the includes.

Why not just build the objects using cc -c and then create the .so or .a using ld or ar respectively?

RE: build -install ACE, TAO 1.4 on Solaris 9.

-h<name> Assigns <name> to generated dynamic shared library.
I am not sure what objects are needed for me to compile & link at this point. so not so comfortable building each object separately

RE: build -install ACE, TAO 1.4 on Solaris 9.

So why does libACE.5.4a.23 appear twice?  I think one of them should be removed.  The one after the -h is OK, but the one following it doesn't make a lot of sense.
