I can confirm successful builds of gcc3-c, gcc3-c++, and gcc3-f77
on Solaris 10. Here are a couple things you might want to try
(differences between your setup and mine).
- Install the official Solaris 10 release.
(download here: http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/get.jsp)
You're using an old release from the Solaris Express program.
- Use /usr/sfw/bin/gcc
Also see my other message from earlier today.
I'd also recommend that you update (or re-install) your pkgsrc tree
from the latest one in CVS. There were a couple fixes in the last
few days that make building gcc3-c on Solaris better.
