I don't know how old Solaris 6 is, but most likely it is too old for 
many people to care about (including us at MySQL AB building releases).

In your place, I would *not* change Makefiles etc, and not mess with the 
"configure" output - even though it may be incorrect for Solaris 6, 
changing it might introduce more inconsistencies.

IMO, you should restart your work in a new tree (to be sure you start 
with the original files), and then try this:

What I would do with such an undeclared function (missing prototype) is
1) search for the system header file defining it,
2) add an "#include ..." line for this header file into the module for
    which the compiler complained, *after* all other include lines,
3) re-run "make" (no new "configure", that is still valid)
and repeat these steps for each new such error message.

We had issues on Solaris (Solaris 8, AFAIR) that some function was 
available in the C and C++ runtime libraries, but was not defined in the 
system header files (at least not for C++), so C++ compilation failed.
If you encounter such a case (and I fear Solaris 6 may have more of 
these than Solaris 8), your best chance is to find the correct prototype 
for this function and explicitly add it to the source module without 
using a header file.

I hope it does,
