I have resolved this issue - Found workable Samba 3.0.10 package on
NB - I was looking for this package at samba.org Not gnu.org or sun.com
(where I was looking for gcc)

Subject: Need some help with installing Samba 

I'd be grateful for some help with installing Samba 3.0.21c on Solaris 8
$ uname -a
SunOS aggrekodev1 5.8 Generic_117000-05 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-880
I've read the Installation and Compilation guides at samba.org, the
install chapter of 
Using Samba and checked on sunmanagers but have yet to come-up with a
I seem to have two options for installation with option 1 being much
less involved:
1/. Install pkg     
2/. Compile binaries
I could not find the latest package for the above O/S at gnu.org or
sun.com  - there
was not much there at all in fact, so I tried to compile (didn't know I
don't have a 
compiler until I found the below when running configure):
./configure: cc: command not found
configure:1708: $? = 127
configure:1717: result: 
configure:1804: checking for gcc
configure:1833: result: no
configure:1884: checking for cc
configure:1913: result: no
configure:1926: checking for cc
configure:1972: result: no
configure:2025: checking for cl
configure:2054: result: no
configure:2068: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
I looked around for a compiler and Ideally I would like one that Sun
I found gcc (not supported by Sun) for Solaris 9 & 10 on sun.com but not
solaris 8.
1/. Is there a recent & working Samba package for above Solaris 8 64-bit
available anywhere?
2/. Is there a Sun supported/supplied compiler suitable for installing
Samba & if so where?
I have a call in at Sun for point 2 but would appreciate any info you
can give me on this.
