Sometime during 6.x or early to mid 7.x gdb became broken on sparc solaris,
so the earliest I've tried is ~7.8 (with variants of the patches I
submitted over the last few months that address them).  I'm fairly sure if
I go back far enough that it's [semi?-]functional it would be too old
because we're making use of C++11/14-isms.
