I recently built gcc3-c++ on Solaris 9 with an external gcc without
any problems:

# pkg_info | grep gcc
gcc3-c-3.3.4        GNU Compiler Collection, v3 - C compiler
gcc3-c++-3.3.4      GNU Compiler Collection, v3 - C++ compiler
gcc3-f77-3.3.4      GNU Compiler Collection, v3 - F77 compiler

# pkg_info -B gcc3-c++ | grep -i CC_VERSION

I have previously built it using SunPro without any problems, too. I
