Sorted it out just fine :

ganymede$ uname -a
SunOS ganymede 5.5.1 Generic_103640-12 sun4m sparc SUNW,SPARCstation-20
ganymede$ /opt/imed/gcc/gcc346/bin/gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.4.6

That may be able to bootstrap a ver 5.x but I am not so sure when
Solaris 2.5.1 was dropped entirely. Should be interesting to see.
