CC is the Sun C++ compiler. C99 offered <stdint.h> and its available
for C programs. <stdint.h> provides uint32_t, uintptr_t and friends.
Many C++ compilers offer them, but the <stdint.h> types it was not
required for C++ until recently (C++11?).

Until this email, I thought Microsoft was the only implementation
which did not offer it in most of its compilers. Microsoft users must
include <stddef.h> instead (I think it changed in VS2013 with better
C++11 support).

I know <stdint.h> is available on later Solaris, but I don't know what
you need for early Solaris. Or maybe more correctly, its available in
later versions of Sun Studio/Oracle Studio/Developer Studio (like
versions 12).

The real question is for you, do you have the data types like
uint32_t, uintptr_t, and friends.
