Actually I think /usr/ucb/cc is just a wrapper for the Sun C compiler
which turns on some flags and sets libdirs to link with the ucb
compatibility libraries.  In general you don't want this...

One of the flags it turns on is -Xs, which means "Compile assuming
(pre-ANSI) K & R C style code"

And of course since it's just a wrapper it doesn't work anyway unless
you have the real C compiler installed.
