I'm using a fresh install of Solaris 10u2 (6/06). I used smpatch to  
upgrade the system with the latest patches. /usr/sfw comes with the system  
and I haven't touched it, other than to symlink a few files (i.e. gmake to  
make, gar to ar, etc.) so things get found properly. I did notice a funny  
message during configure that looked like this:

checking for ld used by gcc... /usr/ccs/bin/ld

Why doesn't it use /usr/sfw/bin/ld? /usr/ccs/bin isn't even in my PATH.

Again, there's a sparc package for this version, so it MUST be possible to  
build in Solaris. the x86 version is close enough that the same build  
process should be replicateable. Solaris 10 is backwards compatible with  
Solaris 8, too, so that shouldn't be the issue. But my build environment  
might be way off. I don't believe Sun makes any guarantees about the GNU  
software shipped with Solaris.
