I am installing Python-3.1 on "SunOS sunx7qa 5.10 Generic_127112-06 
i86pc i386 i86pc".

./configure  done without any error.

But 'make' throwing folloing error:

Plz assist to install Python on Solaris_x86

I dont know Solaris, but googling for "libintl_textdomain solaris" shows 
that many other projects have the same issue.
The solution seems to set LDFLAGS=-lintl
msg92500 - (view) Author: Sandip Thorat (thoratsandip) Date: 2009-09-10 23:47
Which file do i edit to add LDFLAGS=-lintl  ?

and at what place?

I'm not a Unix expert at all, but did you try to export the variable?
    export LDFLAGS=-lintl
then "configure" and "make".

I'm tagging this as a duplicate of #13843, since I expect more activity
on the newer issue.
