IIRC __inline is a gcc-ism, because 'inline' was a valid user variable name
before being added to C (posibly via C++) in C99.
Possibly _inline is valid, in any case a simple #define will suffice.

The  '__attribute__ ((unused))' is definitely a gcc-ism.
One of the NetBSD header files (maybe sys/cdefs.h) might contain something
that should be used instead of '__attribute__ ((unused))' so that it
can be #defined to the appropraite string (if any) for the compiler.

OTOH it isn't obvious that the object files generated by sun's compiler
are useful to you - except for building tools to run under solaris (or
maybe linux).

Sun's compiler does, however, support some gcc-isms (and M$ isms) but
not necessarily the ones you want.  And I've had issues with sun's
sparc compiler not accepting M$isms that it is documented as handling.
