[RndTbl] Compiling (C) software for Solaris 10

There is no functional C compiler in Solaris. (There exists one that is exactly adequate for relinking the kernel, and that’s it.)
To get Sun’s C compiler, you need PWB – Programmer’s WorkBench. I think it has a new name… yup, “Solaris Studio”, and you no longer have to pay for it. It’s a lot more than just a command-line compiler.
Or just download gcc from <http://www.sunfreeware.com> www.sunfreeware.com, which you’ll probably have to do anyway since most open-source software Makefiles aren’t happy with Sun’s compiler. Note, see <http://www.sunfreeware.com/faq.html#q4> http://www.sunfreeware.com/faq.html#q4.
If you have the Solaris Companion CD/DVD that came with some versions of Solaris, gcc may be on the disc, probably in a package called SFWgcc. The Sun Freeware Collection and associated webpages appear to have died a typical Oracle death since the acquisition, so I can’t tell if it even exists for Solaris 10 or not.
Most people wind up installing the sunfreeware.com packages, AFAIK… they stay somewhat up to date, whereas the SFW* packages on the Sun CD are static and typically don’t get updated until the next major release of Solaris.

Subject: [RndTbl] Compiling (C) software for Solaris 10
At work here I have a "SunOS cowsvpsunfire 5.10 Generic_142909-17 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V490" (from uname -a) with the "sol_10_910_sparc" disc mounted. This system appears to have no "cc" or "gcc" (according to "which"). Which package(s) from the CD do I need to install to have a basic C command-line compiler available? I'm trying to compile Iozone (iozone.org), and the makefile run says "sh: cc: not found".
