We have been using GNU compiler provided by Cygnus for free. Recently,
after Cygnus became part of Red Hat, we tried to get a copy of the compiler
from Cygnus. They quoted a very expensive price and they stressed that
the price includes source code support. An ordinary user does not need
source code support. They insisted that paying for the source code support
is the only way to get Pentuim lll compiler.
How can I get Pentuim lll GNU cross compiler (running on Solaris) without
paying thousands of dollars for it.

I believe that you can build a cross compiler simply by telling GCC to build
that way when you run ./configure.

This sounds very odd to me, as I am under the impression that Cygnus' work
on GCC is contributed back to the core of GCC.
However, I would suggest that you send these questions to the GCC users'
mailing list: email@example.com. This is gated to the news group,
gnu.gcc.help. You can subscribe to the mailing list by sending the word
"subscribe" to the address firstname.lastname@example.org.
They will know for sure.
