This is a gcc packaging error.  I thought Sunfreeware's packages of gcc
for both 32- and 64-bit x86 were affected.  Have the 32-bit packages
since been fixed?  What versions of gcc are you using?

Here is my gcc version info:
bash-3.00$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/sfw/lib/gcc/i386-pc-solaris2.10/3.4.3/specs
Configured with: /builds/sfw10-gate/usr/src/cmd/gcc/gcc-3.4.3/configure
--prefix=/usr/sfw --with-as=/usr/sfw/bin/gas --with-gnu-as
--with-ld=/usr/ccs/bin/ld --without-gnu-ld --enable-languages=c,c++
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.4.3 (csl-sol210-3_4-branch+sol_rpath)

It compiles just fine in 32-bit mode.

The workaround was to add a proper -I directive on the gcc command line.
Maybe you're still using one for your 32-bit builds?

for 64-bit?

I am unsure if we want to patch this in JtR source code.  It may be
better to use a non-broken compiler build - either proper/clean/new
build of gcc or Oracle Solaris Studio (yes, the name keeps changing).

You could want to try building/using gcc in a user's home directory:

I had tested this procedure on Linux (and re-tested it recently with a
gcc 4.7.0 development snapshot), but it should also work on Solaris.

skipping it, there are no problems with compiling JtR on Solaris 64-bit.
