This can be added to the wiki. ECL still has a flag --enable-slow-conf
which uses GMP to guess the right flags, but in your case this would
lead to a 64 bit ECL, which is probably not what you need.

Where is this flag? I have not found it yet.

There is a simpler fix which is to conditionally remove the offending line

#-(or :linux :wsock :cygwin :solaris)
(define-sockopt sockopt-reuse-port "SO_REUSEPORT" bool)

But, since I have not built ECL on solaris for a long time, I am not
sure whether :solaris or :sun is present in the global variable
*features* . Can you check this?
