Building gdb on 64bit solaris

Ok, I downloaded 5.2, and everything built fine for 64-bit (although I'm
still going to have to modify source code to make this work with EDG
demangling)
Here's the steps I followed (ksh):

1) export CC='gcc -m64'
2) ./configure --prefix=<INSTALL DIR>
3) make
4) make install

This worked just fine.  I will be working on getting 5.2 to work with the
Kai C++ compiler so it can demangle the names properly, and I will mail that
to the Intel/Kai folks so they can hopefully post that on a website
somewhere for any Kai C++/KCC users
Thanks again

Could you please download than try GDB 5.2 or better a current snapshot 
of GDB.  See http://sources.redhat.com/gdb/current/ .  From other 
comments, it apparently doesn't build.  However, if you can post the 
details or look closer, it may be possible to figure out what is going 
wrong.
