I stand corrected, 3.4.6 is indeed that last gcc to support SunOS 4.1.x 
.  I was typing from memory and I tried so many gcc versions
that I lost track.  All attempts at building gcc versions > 3.2.3 <=

version the build process advances further,  but it fails when building 
libstdc++ with xgcc  (the file is
