Thank you, I can confirm that gcc works now.

Thank you, the remaining issue I currently see is that Solaris 10 (gcc210)
defaults to /bin/sh which makes running (FFmpeg) configure impossible
while the Solaris 11 system (gcc211) defaults to bash making everything
much easier.

How is a non-root user supposed to overwrite the default shell?
