compile/link problem on Solaris

Is there a central place where I could look for bug reports/solutions (other
than scanning all messages to this newsgroup)?
I dropped off the list for a few months, and had to discard my 1.23 version.
I just picked up the sources for 1.31 and tried to build it on Solaris 2.5.x.
The first time I did the make I got error messages from the compiler indicating
unresolved symbol references, but hadn't captured them in a file, so I
cleaned up and made the system again, capturing the error messages; there
weren't any this time... (Why not? -- compiler got smarter, I guess )
Anyway, it built and started up nicely. I've hit one problem consistently:
Play With Me - 4, which displays the "Back to the Future" memo, has this
little problem: If I click on the arrow to go to the next page, the system
freezes and the only way I have found to recover is to kill the process.
Anyone know of a problem like that?
Another question: Is it possible to build the system completely from
scratch, without using a preexisting image file (but with a changes file
and the sources)? If I take the C sources and build the VM, can I have it
build the system from the sources? How? -- where's that documented?
