That nearly-dead neuron has value. The problem is that most people are 
getting the Solaris 10 beta builds whose headers conflict with the gcc 
3.3.2 package's 'adapted' headers they are acquiring from 
sunfreeware.com, which, along with distributing other binary packages, 
is the place referred to by gcc.gnu.org for pre-built Solaris binaries. 
All the original poster needs to do is rebuild the gcc's 'adapted' 
headers with:

# cd /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i386-pc-solaris2.10/3.3.2/install-tools
# ./mkheaders

and they should be good to go....
