Just some more information about
ClockXXX class hierarchy.

The idea of the Clock class hierarchy is to
offer best-available clock for CERTI internal timing
on various platform.

CMake build will check for available HW support and
add to the build specific class (e.g. TSCClock.hh)
if it is available.

Clock is the base abstract class,
PosixClock use Posix clock API
TSCClock use IA-32 Time Stamp Counter

others clock may be useful

I leave the bug open until you (or someone else )confirm
TSCClock is efficiently excluded from a Sparc/Solaris build.

This file should be excluded from the compilation
by the CMake script on unsupported platform:

You may found this in the

SET(TSC_ENABLED_PROCESSOR_REGEX ".*x86_64.*|.*i686.*")

Then in
           TSCClock.cc TSCClock.hh)             

Or may be the file is included in a file it shouldnt?

Did you compile using CMake?

I guess CERTI does not run on Sparc. There is an Intel x86 assembly instruction in libCERTI/TSCClock.hh:53.

Could you possibly get rid of it? (Just this one, no other.)
