successful install of gcc 3.0.1 on Solaris 8 (64 bit)


I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that I was successful at
installing the GCC version 3.0.1 on sparc-sun-solaris-2.8 (64 bits).

I saw on the build status page that this was "Not supported".  I am
guessing that is because it wasn't easy for me to install.

Here is how I did it:

Starting with the Solaris C compiler version 4.2, I tried to compile the
full source code "gcc-3.0.1.tar.gz" and it failed.  Thinking I might have
better luck to install an older version first, and then use the older
version to compile the new version, I tried installing the full package for
"gcc-2.9.5.tar.gz" and again I had errors during the compilation.

Eventually, I tried just getting the core for 2.95 (gcc-core-2.95.tar.gz)
and I was successful at compiling and installing that.  I then used that
version to successfully compile and install the full 3.0.1 version which
had failed previously.

After installation, I successfully used it to compile the latest released
version of Samba (2.2.2) with no problems.

Thank you for all of the hard work which goes into making FSF software
