Basically I was referred to a FAQ at the page.  Here's
what the FAQ statement said.

6.2) Which packages do I need to install to support a C compiler?
Solaris ships with everything you need, with the exception of the
compiler itself.  Solaris ships with the include files, make, an
assembler, linker and libraries.  All this stuff lives in
/usr/ccs/bin (add it to your PATH before /usr/ucb if that's in your
PATH as well) /usr/ccs/lib and /usr/include.
If you still can't find it, make sure you have the following
packages installed on your system:
for tools (sccs, lex, yacc, make, nm, truss, ld, as):
    SUNWbtool, SUNWsprot, SUNWtoo
for libraries & headers:
    SUNWhea, SUNWarc, SUNWlibm, SUNWlibms
    SUNWdfbh, SUNWcg6h, SUNWxwinc, SUNWolinc,
for 64 bit development:
    SUNWarcx, SUNWbtoox, SUNWdplx, SUNWscpux, SUNWsprox,
    SUNWtoox, SUNWlmsx, SUNWlmx, SUNWlibCx
for ucb compat:
    SUNWsra, SUNWsrh
These packages are all on the Solaris 2.x CDs, except that some
packages may only exist in some releases and not in others.
Some packages may be on separate CDs, such as the "Desktop/CDE"
CD, but all are part of the Solaris "bundle".

Thanks again to everyone.  I'll give this a try and see if it does in fact
solve my "problem".  Unfortunately I need to schedule maintenance for this
so I don't have a definitive answer on whether this was all I needed or
not.  Will summerize further if it did.

Original Post below:

   Hopefully someone can give me some input here.  We currently have a
Solaris 2.5.1 core installation on an Ultra2.  However, after installing
the gcc package from, I'm still unable to compile
anything.  After further research, it appears I don't have all the
neccessary libraries/packages to compile software.  So is there a list or
docs out there that will tell me which packages to install to go from a
standard solaris "core" installation to a "full" installation?  Thanks in
advance.  Will summerize.
