Where is Tightvnc 1.2.3; also, compile problems

I found that depending on whether I was behind a firewall,
I am accessing a cached copy of the TightVNC website.
It might help to browse to a different page, then clear
caches on disk and in memory.  Sometimes, not even this
helps, presumably because some intermediate machines
insist on serving a cached copy.  Rumour has it that
on netscape, a shift-Reload is a request for an uncached
copy of a page, but I also seem to recall that respecting
that request is not an official part of any protocol standard.

Some problems encountered compiling using
gnu make and gnu cc on solaris 8 (sorry, I
didn't note the particulars and the file as it was
really late and I ended up going back to 1.2.2, so
this is from memory).  I was compiling with
zlib libraries.

1.  One of the make files has CC hardcoded to a
nongnu compiler, I think it's /usr/ucb/cc.
Commenting this out allowed the make file to
inherit the gcc program path from the parent
make file.  Otherwise, the non-gnu compiler
chokes on syntax in one of the make files.

2.  In sun.cf, I defined AsmDefines as null because one
of the commands in a makefile was interpretting
AsmDefines as a file name.  In various other *.cf
files, AsmDefines is defined as a platform-dependent
command line switch.

3.  A number of labels couldn't be found,
referenced from 4 different *.o files within a *.a

Sorry for the vagueness, but hopefully anyone else
encountering these will recognize them.  Maybe even
confirm that #2 was properly handled or not, and
maybe even find the fix for #3.
