You shouldn't need to compile (or configure) gcc for installation
itself; sunfreeware (or blastwave.com) offer it as a package which you
can install with the solaris pkg-add utility (# pkg-add -d gcc.pkg would
be the command).

You have to make the "cc" variable in the config that you're trying to
compile use "gcc" instead of cc (or point to gcc). You can also try
making /usr/ucb/cc a link to gcc (wherever you have it installed -- if
it's from sunfreeware.com that'll be /usr/local or /opt unless you
specified somewhere else.)

Make sure that whichever way you choose to do it, you add that directory
to your path.

This is what I get when I try to configure 'GCC' for installation.

Any help?

# ./configure
