On Solaris 11, this would be:

./configure --cc=/usr/gcc/4.5/bin/gcc

to use Oracle's GCC 4.5.2 package ('pkg install developer/gcc-45').
Don't use the GCC in /usr/sfw/bin, it's an older version.

On Solaris 10, you would have to check 3rd party sources for GCC 4 or 
build one yourself, this normally goes without errors.

Alternatively, you can also compile with Sun Studio 12.3 but that 
requires a couple of patches and in my opinion it's not worth the effort.
