Hi Jesse,


On a Solaris 9 box, the ./configure results in
  id: illegal option -- g
  Usage: id [-ap] [user]

checking the diff between RC1 and RC2 I noticed that
  $ diff rt-3.6.0rc2/configure rt-3.6.0rc1/configure
  < my_group=$(id -gn)
  > my_group=$(groups|cut -f1 -d' ')

On my Solaris, "man id" gets

System Administration Commands                             id(1M)
      id - return user identity

      /usr/bin/id [-p] [user]
      /usr/bin/id -a [-p] [user]

      /usr/xpg4/bin/id [-p] [user]
      /usr/xpg4/bin/id -G [-n] [user]
      /usr/xpg4/bin/id -g [-nr] [user]
      /usr/xpg4/bin/id -u [-nr] [user]

and /usr/bin is before /usr/xpg4/bin on the PATH.  So the -g illegal option results.  No biggy.
