Thanks very much since removing all occurrences of -I/usr/include from
head.i386-pc-solaris2.8 has done the trick, I now have grass5.0.0pre1
built under Solaris 8 (Intel)!  There were also warnings about conflicts
between the System TERMLIB and NCURSES, although I those may NOT be
critical since full-screen cursor movement appears to "work"?

I thought using the gcc (2.95.2) included in SUN's Companion would be an
quick way to build GRASS under Solaris 8, did NOT anticipate conflicts
with the existing System "stuff"???
