Hi Jeff,

I use GCC 3.3.1 on Solaris 8 / SunOS 5.8 (SPARC).

You get get a pre-compiled GCC here: http://www.sunfreeware.com/

Personally, FOR SOLARIS, I recommend getting the GCC source and building 
the compiler from scratch, because the compiler is sensitive to OS version 
and patch levels.  If you put another patch level on, more likely than not 
it'd behoove you to rebuild the compiler.

It's not TERRIBLY hard to build (if you already have a C compiler), but it 
does take an hour-or-four.
