 Just to confirm, there are multiple stacked issues here:
 a.) The build uses /lib/cpp for parts of the install, but bare /lib/cpp
     chokes on some included system headers (since ISA-specific defines
     aren't set up.
 b.) hand-tweaking this to use cc -E also fails because the build uses
     gcc-specific hackery to control the visibility of symbols;  the
     result, when built with solstudio12.2 cc, is a library which builds
     and installs fine, but exports none of the intended symbols (and
     thus is not usable by dependent packages).
 This _probably_ works fine for gcc users.  It doesn't work (and thus
 makes big chunks of pkgsrc unavailable) for SunOS / sun cc.
 I don't know if building just this package with gcc would do the trick;
 historically Solaris/sparc has had API differences between gcc anc cc,
 but I don't know about x86.
