SunOS 5 is what is generally known as Solaris 2. If you type 'uname -r'
you'll see exactly what version of Solaris you have. And as it happens, two
binary packages for Solaris were uploaded last week thanks to Jean Robertson.

(My Solaris 2.7 systems responds "5.7" to that command.)

A system without a compiler is not a complete system! ;-)

But of course, if 6.5.2 works for you, you don't *have to* upgrade...
