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
