Hmm....on my solaris boxes (both with Sun's workshop C compiler 
and GCC), REPLACE_GETPASS is being defined, so there is not a problem.
Can you check in include/config.h and see if this is defined?
If not, I need to figure out why not....

What Solaris release is this?  and what compiler?
Also include any ./configure options you have set.

cheers, jerry
