Has anyone successfully compiled GCC 4.2.0 under Solaris 8, using GCC 3.3.2? I'm getting several hours into the build, and then getting a failure:
In file included from /export/spare/dev/gcc-4.2.0/sparc-sun-so
laris2.8/libstdc++-v3/include/ext/pb_ds/h ash_policy.hpp:57:87: error: ext/pb_ds/detail/resize_policy/hash_load _check_resize_trigger_size_base.hpp: No such file or directory
What's confusing me is that the file does, so far as I can tell, exist.
bash-2.03$ cd /export/spare/dev/gcc-4.2.0/sparc-sun-so
bash-2.03$ ls -l ext/pb_ds/detail/resize_policy/hash_load
lrwxrwxrwx 1 alan dev 128 Jun 11 17:56 ext/pb_ds/detail/resize_policy/hash_load

Is this OS too old for me to build this, or what? (I'll note that the other inclusions from that source file from that directory work fine - is it a filename length?) I'll candidly admit that I've not tried to use Solaris before, and I've never tried to build gcc either.
ETA: OK, I think I know the answer. When I extracted the sources from the tar file, tar itself truncated some file names. So though the links exist, the linkees don't ... not when the names are very long.
Currently building Gnu tar, and will then use that to reextract all the sources
