Success building on Solaris 10 (x86). I have a broken version of ncurses, and had to build with curses instead. To do so I went into the source folder and used:

cc -O -fast -m64 -xarch=sse2a -xvector=simd -lcurses -m64 -o freecell freecell.o gameno.o

It's the line ./configure tried to use, but with -lcurses added.

I've just compiled this and got it working unmodified on MacOS 10.12.3. It also works on Raspbian, which is where I usually play.

Thanks for the post!

Thanks for this. I found my old fork of this, and just put it on my github - https://github.com/nfultz/freecell

Thanks for making such a neat tty game! I've also made a fork with various improvements (better metamoves, support for playing sequential numbered games, integration with fc-solve and accidental quit protection). https://github.com/ostrosablin/freecell
