Thank you Dave for the reply. I used solstudio12.2, and followed the R admin installation instruction for Solaris. When I run R as the compiled result, there is a line "Platform: sparc-sun-solaris2.10 (32-bit)".
export CC CPPFLAGS CFLAGS F77 FFLAGS CXX CXXFLAGS FC FCFLAGS LDFLAGS
./configure --prefix=/apps/R-2.12.0 --with-tcl-config=/opt/csw/lib/tclConfig.sh --with-tk-config=/opt/csw/lib/tkConfig.sh --disable-nls --with-recommended-packages=no

I meant the issues are with gcc - SunStudio is ok.
I would be nice to be able to build R with gcc though. I know the gcc compiler
is inferior, but some systems don't have SunStudio. For a project like Sage, we
have 100 packages, and R is the only one that needs SunStudio to build. (I'd
rather build the whole of Sage with SunStudio, but there are too many GNUisms
for that). So I might have to use two compilers, which is a real pain in the butt
