I'm using sparc and I chose this at the freeware site. I'm still not sure of
the differences between using pkgadd or building from source but I'll give
it a shot. 
mv gcc-3.4.2 /var/spool/pkg
Error: no packages were found in </var/spool/pkg>

uhm......... sounds that you got the sources... Do you know how to use 
pkg tool??? First, which architecture are you using? Sparc or X86? at 
sunfreeware you gotta choose the right platform/version, download and 
install the package using pkgadd
Not the sources...

is that right?
