 I think you meant "sunpro", not "sumpro".

 No, they won't. They are passing the arguments exactly as they get them.

 A lot of tools try to hide error messages, but there are work-arounds. 
 First, have a look at the config.log files, where much is recorded. 
 Second, in the work* directory, there is a file called work.log, which 
 has further information.
 I'm trying to reproduce it on my system, but to help me a bit, can you 
 please send me the actual error messages?
