If the Solaris box was set up as a developer machine, it should already
be installed;  if it was only set up as an end-user machine, maybe not.

Usually, though, the package is installed but /usr/ccs/bin isn't included
on the user's PATH.

Also, of course, do *not* put /usr/ucb on your PATH, and for the most 
part do *not* set LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

/usr/ccs/bin also contains the SVR4 version of 'make', so set your path
appropriately depending on whether you want GNU make or SVR4 make to
take precedence.

(I ended up having a ~/bin directory that contains links to selected 
GNU programs, e.g. GNU make and GNU tar, and putting that directory on
my path ahead of everything else when I want GNU make and maybe GNU tar 
but not other GNU things, e.g. GNU as or the other binutils).
