Well, I don't believe I was running into some x86 vs. SPARC problems yet 
- I am not very knowledgeable about Solaris, have never before built 
software for it and so far have only used the Sun-provided tools, having 
a hard time figuring out which directories I might need to include in 
PATH (missing some handy Linux commands like locate).
The first few files compile fine, then inside libgc the error "large 
files are not supported by libelf" is raised via the included 
/usr/include/link.h, and make (or gmake) stops. This error originates 
from the following excerpt of /usr/include/libelf.h:

#if defined(_ILP32) && (_FILE_OFFSET_BITS != 32)
#error "large files are not supported by libelf"
