I've found Solaris 10 much better to compile things on than Solaris 8.
There are loads of GNU programs pre-installed in the /usr/sfw/bin so
make sure that folder is in front of any other folders in your PATH
environment variable(eg type export PATH=/usr/sfw/bin:$PATH). We have
successfully been able to install postgres 8.1.4 and postgis 1.1.2 on a
Solaris 10 machine.
