I meet same problem on Redhat Linux-6.2 on Ultra Sparc.
Redhat Linux include: gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/sparc-redhat-linux/egcs-2.91.66/specs
gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)

I tried to install gcc-3.0.3 from source tar ball, but I got error message
during compilation gcc.

There is any gcc-3.0.3 binary for Redhat Linux-6.2 on Ultra Sparc?
How can I to get it?
