How to combine c11 and c99 compilers?

I have a SPARC server with Solaris SPARC 10 OS installed
I am trying to compile source code from VLC media player and PHP 7 tarballs
However the stumbling block I encounter is that when I type in ./configure into my PUTTY terminal the GCC compiler tells me halfway through configuration that it needs C99 compiler.
I know that this statement enables the c99 compiler
  BUILDCC="/usr/bin/gcc -std=gnu99" ./configure

but by doing this I switch off the c11 compiler and so I cannot still complete a full configuration.
How do I switch on both C11 and C99 compilers and/or can I type in a command that will switch from one compiler to another whilst in the configuration process, as and when the gcc compiler needs to?
I thankyou for any feedback given
regards Smilie

HI alphatron150,

Welcome to the forums.

Please use code tags and icode tags when posting code, commands, input and output text, etc.

Couple points - Solaris 10 first came out before the C11 standards -- in January 2005. You may be getting the error not from the compiler, but from the package configure information, which expects C11 or whatever. Also most Solaris 10 boxes had /usr/bin/gcc as a symlink.

So please post the output of: gcc --version
