It includes cc.

The newest version of gcc should work to the best of my knowledge
(I don't believe they have removed support for SunOS 4.X).

Other than patching for security, SunOS 4.X is a very stable and quick

When I worked for Sun, the guy responsible for tracking internal migration
to Solaris 2.X for primary desktop systems gave up on me and recorded that
I was running Solaris when I was really still running 4.1.3.  I had Solaris
2.3 dev build running on my secondary machine.
