1) Compile issue: After some searching I found the 12.4 manual. The new version
of the compiler is 5.13 and it defaults to the c11 standard. Here is an excerpt
of the document
previous default was -Xa.
(Obsolete) The -Xs option will be removed in a future release. It is
recommended that C code that requires -Xs to build and compile correctly be
migrated to conform with at least the C99 dialect of the ISO C standard, that
is, compilable with -std=c99.
The -Xc, -Xa, -Xt, and -Xs flags cannot be used if the -std or -xlang flag has
When not using the -std flag, the -X (note uppercase X) options specify varying
degrees of compliance to the 1990 and 1999 ISO C standard. The value of -xc99
affects which version of the ISO C standard the -X option applies. The -xc99
option defaults to -xc99=all which supports the 1999 ISO/IEC C standard.
-xc99=none supports the 1990 ISO/IEC C standard. See D.1 for a discussion of
supported 1999 ISO/IEC features. See Appendix H for a discussion of differences
between ISO/IEC C and K&R C.
The default mode of the compiler is -std=c11 without the -pedantic flag. If the
-xc99 flag has been specified or is in effect, then -Xa is the default mode of
the compiler .
(c = conformance) Issues errors and warnings for programs that use non-ISO C
constructs. This option is strictly conformant ISO C without K&R C
compatibility extensions. The predefined macro __STDC__ has a value of 1 with
ISO C plus K&R C compatibility extensions with semantic changes required by ISO
C. Where K&R C and ISO C specify different semantics for the same construct,
the compiler uses the ISO C interpretation. If the -Xa option is used in
conjunction with the -xtransition option, the compiler issues warnings about
the different semantics. The predefined macro __STDC__has a value of -0 with
(t = transition) This option uses ISO C plus K&R C compatibility extensions
without semantic changes required by ISO C. Where K&R C and ISO C specify
different semantics for the same construct, the compiler uses the K&R C
interpretation. If you use the -Xt option in conjunction with the -xtransition
option, the compiler issues warnings about the different semantics. The
predefined macro __STDC__ has a value of 0 with the -Xt option.
(s = K&R C) Attempts to warn about all language constructs that have differing
behavior between ISO C and K&R C. The compiler language includes all features
compatible with K&R C. This option invokes cpp for preprocessing. __STDC__ is
not defined in this mode.

This is the same issue as:
where I suggested to use CFLAGS="-xc99=all,lib -Xc" as a work around.
However, it seems that the C compiler of SunStudio 12.4 actually supports the
needed C99 feature (struct/union initialiazers) by default.
Perhaps it might make sense to enable it like the attached patch.

I suppose those are:
where the problem is caused by missing locale packages.
