Doh!  Now I see what you mean.

Yes, the preprocessor guards are incorrect -- __sun__ is not defined by
default (at least for the Sun Forte 6 compilers).

My $0.02 is that it would be safer to explicitly test for <alloca.h> in
configure.  This would then cover all compilers/OS's, and not have to
create a case-by-case exception (I am against using explicity OS/compiler
tests to select chunks of code, wherever possible).

To this end, I attached a small patch:

- Patch 6: Check for <alloca.h> in vorbis-tools/configure.in instead of
relying on built in compiler preprocessor macros.  It's a similar style
check as the one for <memory.h> in the vorbis module, and doesn't require
a .h.in file.




Similarly, to go with Ken Arnold's reply about the getopt stuff that's
already in oggenc that needs to go in ogg123, perhaps proper tests for
<getopt.h> and the long_options type should also be added to configure,
such that the OS/compiler's <getopt.h> and the internal getopt() functions
should be used when available, instead of creating linker/header file
ambiguity by using the distributed versions.

Not hugely important, but it seems like the Right Thing to do.
