A couple of months ago I tried to get 64-bit Informix installed on an 
Ultra1 running a 64-bit kernel. I figured I needed a 64-bit gcc to do 
the compiling (or linking or whatever Informix needs a C compiler for). 
I could not find a 64-bit gcc, but I did find instructions on making 
one. I was not successful.

I seem to remember reading recently that a 64-bit gcc binary is 
available now, but unfortunately I don't know where. Probably worth 
trying the usual suspects: ibiblio, sunfreeware, etc. Do you already 
have a 64-bit gcc? Because I seem to remember that there were particular 
flags I had to specify in order to compile gcc into a 64-bit version. 
Maybe it is the same with other executables as well as the compiler?
