The manual says to set ABI to 64. configure itself then takes care of 
adding -xarch=v9 as it sees fit.

Not the most interesting compiler to support. Maybe the newest version 
would make sense. But the whole product has been discontinued, they are 
only providing a few patches to paying customers to respect the service

Solaris 10 is EOL, it only has a few years of extended support left, and 
that's normally for people who cannot upgrade anything, in particular not 
people who compile new versions of GMP.

bash ./config.guess
bash ./configfsf.guess

(maybe we should add execute permission to configfsf.guess)
