Right - but our customers run older versions too, so we try to test a range.

Hmm - I ran into some macro conflicts when I tried. I found some
emails about the same on the wxWidgets list, which basically said
there are conflicts with the latest headers from Sun Studio - from
what I could gather this was to be fixed in wxWidgets 3.x, but in the
meantime, the answer was to use an older Sun Studion (which I couldn't
find for download) or GCC.

I'll see if I can get a good build based on the opensolaris makefile.

Well some are Sparc 9 & 10, but not x86 Solaris 10. We don't support
x86 Solaris 9 so haven't tested that.

I can only see 1.8 there - but the Makefile is there of course, which
may be useful.
