I think this was all covered in detail during the beta test releases
and I am certain that last year I was quite vocal that the config files
are wrong for Solaris. The solution is that the user *must* modify the
config files and really there is no other way. The compiler that I
tested with was Oracle Studio 12.6 on a solaris 10 sparc server with
full contract support and thus the libm files were changed.  That was
all covered last year and I think Rainer Orth has been detailed and also
vocal about the libm disaster.

So don't expect much in the future from gcc for Solaris 10.

 Solaris issues :
