        We compiled the latest RegEx library on:

        1. SunOS 5.8 Workshop 6: We used the sunpro.mak makefile.
Unfortunately, we received many error messages regarding conversions from
enum to int
                                 and vice versa.

        2. HP-UX 11.11 aCC 3.33: We used the generic.mak makeilfe. We got an
error regarding dynamic_cast from char*& to char*.

        In both cases, we didn't run the configure script in libs/config,
because if we do, we get many compilation errors (probably because of the
        in the created user.hpp).

        Are you aware of these problems? or are we doing something wrong?
        Is it imperative that we run the configure script and not use the
default user.hpp?

        On top of that, we managed to overcome the problems I mentioned by
simply specifing explicit conversion and casting, and we compiled RegEx on
        Forte 6 with the 64-bit compilation flag. The compilation worked,
but unfortunately, the tests failed. (I mean, the compiled okay and run, but
they say
        that tests.txt contains errors - something that didn't happen when
compiling the 32-bit version).
        What can we do to make it work in 64-bits?
