There's gcc-4.3.3 available[1] from OpenCSW.  It installs into /opt/

As far as building protobuf on Solaris is concerned, I've recently
built it on Solaris 8 using Sun Studio 11.  This build is compatible
with Solaris 9 and 10.  I've build 32- and 64-bit versions for sparc
and x86.  I'm reworking the patches so that they can be submitted

There was a number of tweaks needed for it to compile; some were
related to the platform, and others to the compiler used.  If you
would like to see what was needed to build it, see here:


You can check out this directory, run and tweak the build youself.
You'll need to set up Sun Studio in order to do that.

If you have any further questions about the Solaris build, feel free
to ask.
