CC is the Solaris native C++ compiler I think. I see there is a separate 
section in aclocal.m4 for building with GNU gcc on Solaris. I don't have 
access to any machines using the native Solaris compilers to test it, but 
I suppose it sounds reasonable. Seems weird to have to use the C++ 
compiler for linking when GRASS is almost all C though. Maybe Glynn is on 
to something about GDAL. So many parts of GRASS indirectly depend on GDAL 
now - I wonder though is there anything that links properly using the 
Solaris ld?
