Odd.  I'm running Snort on a Solaris 9 (fully updated and patched) box and
it's chugging away happily.

One thing that you might want to try is to downgrade gcc to 2.95 and see
if you still get the error.  I've heard of some issues with gcc 3.x, but I
thought they had all be resolved.

And just to be safe, see if you can get a pcap (65535 snaplen) of the
data.  It'll be interesting to see if it's the packet or if it's something
