Gcc is fully capable of doing 64 bit code under Solaris. The quandry,
of course, is compiling it in 64 bit mode to begin with :) The "trick"
(for others who don't have SunPro) is to download the demo compiler
and then compile gcc w/ that. Then you're pretty much set. Search
groups.google.com in comp.unix.solaris for more info, but it
definitely can be done.
