Hi Atro,
   Thanks for all your efforts in trouble shooting.  If I understand, 
the GO issue is now resolved but genefilter is still problematic.

   Could you try using gcc to compile rather than sunperf?  It looks 
like there are some header file issues that may be complicating the 
issue and it will take a few days to fix them and test properly (given a 
bunch of other constraints).

  best wishes
