there is 2 thing you could do
	1. use gcc that come with Sol-10 (/usr/sfw/bin/gcc)
	2. hack the code and remove inline's

I do realize that option #2 is a bit nasty but some of the 'gcc' based
coding break when you using strick posix.. btw i used Sun's Studio 11

nb: if you compile with gcc do a 'ldd' to the binary to see what
libraries it depends.. sometime it will need gcc libgcc_s and/or
libstd++ in case you planning to copy/install the binaries on a other
system and therefore you need to be sure you have the these libraries
installed as well..

hope this might help a bit..
