I will not ask why !!

That is most wise :-)

Did cc not come free with early version of SunOS ? Or perhaps that is what you
mean here. Since you will have the gcc sources, you probably have a good chance
of fixing any compatability issues if there are any.

SunOS 4 still comes with a C-Compiler. You can use that to bootstrap
gcc. The usual step is to use the Sun cc to build gcc-2.7.something,
then use gcc-2.7 to build some more development tools and then
use gcc-2.7 to build gcc-2.95.something. Continue as needed.
I just need a first compiler for Solaris 2.1 or 2.2.


Don't suffer from insanity...
Enjoy every minute of it.
