I had also a lot of problems with installing clustalw. You have to
compile it with 'make -f makefile.sun'. One little problem : it
didn't work. You have to open te file 'makefile.sun' with a text
editor. You 'll see a paragraph like this :
OBJECTS = clustalw.o amenu.o sequence.o showpair.o malign.o \
util.o trees.o gcgcheck.o prfalign.o pairalign.o \
calcgapcoeff.o calcprf1.o calcprf2.o calctree.o \
readmat.o alnscore.o random.o
When you compare the names of these files with te names of the files
in your directoy, you 'll see that there are a few typing faults in
this paragraph :
'pairalign.o' should be 'pairalig.o'
'calcgapcoeff.o' should be 'calcgapc.o'
Try to compile it again.
(If this doesn't work, let me know)
