Any ideas?

None, really.  I use gcc-3.2.2 built from source using gcc from the
Solaris 9 Software Companion CD; then I pkgrm'd SFWgcc and all of its
dependencies and I no longer have /opt/sfw.

Since Sun chose to add its supported free software in /usr/sfw that is
where I placed the rest of the free software built from source on this

Solaris 9 -does not- "but solaris-NINE wants it in /opt/sfw   (I believe
that's who wanted it there, not me)".  If you did a complete install of
Solaris 9 you will indeed find much free software in /usr/sfw.

The /opt/sfw (and now /usr/sfw) directory is a bad idea by Sun.  Save
yourself some grief and make /usr/local a symbolic link to whichever
directory your version of Solaris came with.
