basically where on earth is the cc compiler that the PATH CC points to ?
/usr/ucb/cc says optional package not installed. but i have no packages, where to get them?

try a search... like "whereis cc" Or just try reinstalling the compiler. And get a better one... go download gcc.

Someone yell at me if I'm wrong here, but there is an actual CC compiler, completely seperate from GCC... which would raise questions as to why you need CC even on the machine to configure GCC... ??

You dont need cc to install gcc. Go to www.sunfreeware.com and download the binary.

this is almost a standard download on a new system. what you do is after you download the package. it should automaticly link cc to gcc.

solaris by default does not come with a compliler unless you have purchesed one of the add ons for the nos.

if you already have gcc do a whereis cc and ln -s (path to gcc) cc
