Re: pb build 2.2.6 on Solaris

I know it should be possible, but since most of the open source software
is developed using gcc, I prefer to use gcc rather than the sun Forte
compiler(cc).  In the past I have found things that will compile just fine
with gcc but will be a pain to do with cc (Sun's compiler).

There is as well software that will build just fine with cc but not with
gcc unless you adjust some stuff.  This is also dependant of your system
libraries, software, etc.

We do not use Sun's packages for a lot of things since we want to be able
to recompile them from source as soon as a security problem is announced
rather than waiting for sun to patch their packages and install them
(e.g. openssl, openssh, sendmail, and many more).  We compile all of these
with gcc without any problems.
