Re: pkgsrc on opensolaris - is gcc rebuild still required?

The pkgsrc users guide says (relevant up to and including solaris 9)

Is this advice still relevant? I'm running with a recent opensolaris
build (solaris 11, nevada) which comes with the sun freeware
gcc - 3.4.3.
Is there any merit to using the pkgsrc gcc, or is the 'external' gcc
I wouldn't use gcc at all. We use the pkgsrc framework to build most
of our 3rd party binaries for our Solaris 10 machines (and some
development Open Solaris boxes) and I use Sun Studio 11 (or 12) to do
the work. It has been quite reliable, though, to get 64 bit
binaries, I've had to do a good bit of tweaking. To get your
standard 32 bit builds going with Sun Studio, you need to set
in your mk.conf to try it out.
