Our preferred compiler is Studio, not GCC. I think this is based on
the assumption of Studio producing smaller/faster code on Solaris than
GCC but that assumption may have to be revisited. Even though Studio
is free to use we can't package it so I understand that you and others
prefer GCC. For the first time in a long time OpenCSW also has a
current GCC.

I'll see if we can bring up the compiler issue on the maintainers list.
