I do things like this:

   CC='/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc -xarch=v8plusa -xtarget=ultra2 -xc99=all'
   CFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include -O'
   CXX='/opt/SUNWspro/bin/CC -xarch=v8plusa -xtarget=ultra2'
   CXXFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include -O'
   LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/lib -R/usr/local/lib'

You will occasionally need to remove an errant -Wall or similar thing,
but it's not that difficult to get most of the way there.
