sudo compiling error (Mubaraki, Altaf (DCS))

your gcc is quite old, v2.95.2 is current ( and it
appears that it is built for Solaris 2.4

I'd try to upgrade your gcc before anything else. gcc will run
'fixincludes', which among other things copies system headers to a private
area and fix the non-ANSI constructs.

I have never had more than a 'out of disk' error compliling sudo on every
version of Solaris since 2.5.1...

I'd be willing to be that will solve the problems...
