Compiling under Solaris 2.6

Dear Sambanians,

This is not a Samba problem, exactly, but I've lost the ability
to compile it under Solaris 2.6 using gcc.  It appears to be
gcc that's broken. Samba is about the only thing I ever compile
under Solaris, but I tested a few other source codes and had the
same problem.  gcc complains about not finding cpp, then some other
related issues.  Anyone have the scoop on this behavior?
