Clue needed

OK, I need a clue or two.

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-solaris2.8/libstdc++-v3/include/ext/pb_ds/detail/standard_policies.hpp:51,
from /export/spare/dev/gcc-4.2.0/sparc-sun-solaris2.8/libstdc++-v3/include/ext/pb_ds/assoc_container.hpp:52,
from /export/spare/dev/gcc-4.2.0_src/libstdc++-v3/include/precompiled/extc++.h:59:
/export/spare/dev/gcc-4.2.0/sparc-sun-solaris2.8/libstdc++-v3/include/ext/pb_ds/hash_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-solaris2.8/libstdc++-v3/include
bash-2.03$ ls -l ext/pb_ds/detail/resize_policy/hash_load_check_resize_trigger_size_base.hpp
lrwxrwxrwx 1 alan dev 128 Jun 11 17:56 ext/pb_ds/detail/resize_policy/hash_load_check_resize_trigger_size_base.hpp -> /export/spare/dev/gcc-4.2.0_src/libstdc++-v3/include/ext/pb_ds/detail/resize_policy/hash_load_check_resize_trigger_size_base.hpp

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
