I am enclosing the output you asked for.   As I understand you - I can use the pkgrm to remove the packages.  Right?  I hope I can install the gcc 4.8!  ;-)

As you can see from the above "mirror"-line you're on the
"testing"-distribution, packages there are somewhat older. If you want
our latest, but less tested, packages you need to change "testing" to
"unstable", uncomment the "mirror"-line in /etc/opt/csw/pkgutil.conf
and make sure you have "unstable" at the end.

But to start with you need to get rid of CSWgcc from the systems
package database, try "pkgrm CSWgcc".
