I just got a brand spanking new Sun Ultra 20 running Solaris 10 x86, and
I'm having some problems with the pkgsrc collection. I've got everything
bootstrapped fine with the Sun Studio compiler. I'm trying to build
packages, but I'm running into circular dependency with gettext-tools
needing gmake which needs gcc which needs gmake, etc.

What I don't get is why gcc is being built at all. Can't I just use the
Sun Studio compiler? Is there a way to disable the gcc dependency for
all packages?
