Look in /usr/sfw/bin on M2. If you've installed it,
there should be a native gcc there. If not, you should
be able to find a native Solaris/sparc gcc to download.

It's much easier to build natively, since you have
a fully capable solaris/sparc64 box, I recommend you
find a compiler package, download it and build natively.
