I just did a test on Solaris 9 Sparc with Sun Studio 12 and got the following 

1. requires inttypes.h instead of stdint.h and requires extra include signal.h

There are due the old OS and probably not worth fixing:

2. Wrong type on str.insert: should be (char *) NULL instead of 0L

This leads to ambiguous casts either on 32 bit or with 0UL on 64 bit. This can
easily be corrected with

Apart from that it works fine with 32 and 64 bit on spark, i386 and amd64.

We have been traditionally naming these with uppercase "Z". I remember you were
talking to the gzip team about adjusting the names to remove the collisions.
Has this been settled?
