In any case, 2.6.0 is needed now to build 2.7.1. Just rebuild 2.7.1 from
today on Solaris 10 Intel and it failed miserably with 2.4.4. That worked a
few months ago and the 2.7.1 then build doesn't build todays 2.7.1 neither.
Only 2.6.0 builds 2.7.1 correctly. 
But I fully agree: don't do more on Solaris with 2.6.0 than building 2.7.1.
