From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.8 sun4u)

Description of problem:
I downloaded rpm-4.0.3-0.6.6c-src.rpm, got the source files and tried
to compile from scratch on my Solaris 2.8 machine using gcc. It compiled
successfully, however, when I tried to do those simple tasks like:

 rpm -i <packagename>
 rpm -qa <packagename>
 rpm -e <packagename>

I got error message:

 Illegal Instruction

The only thing thast seems to work is command "rpm -qpil <packagename>"

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -i wget-1.6-1.rpm
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  Illegal Instruction


Expected Results:  package wget-1.6-1 is installed

I have no way of reproducing this problem, but have several reports
of success building rpm-4.0.3 on Solaris. So, I'm gonna close
this bug. I'd check your build system ...
