No... usually I've only seen "Killed" if the OS is hurting in some way  
-- insufficient memory, or disk errors in swap space, stuff like  
that.  Or there's some sort of "gunner" process running hunting down  
processes to kill for some reason.  I don't think there's anything  
particularly odd in the tests run by the configure script.  You might  
check the system log(s) to see if anything interesting is being  
reported.  If that doesn't tell you anything, you could try "sh -x  
configure" to see what programs are running that are being killed off.

We've done builds around MIT on Solaris 9 and 10 (on SPARC) for a long  
time now, and AFAIK haven't encountered this.
