Yes.  This will likely cause lots of problems (and could cause the
problems you are seeing), an install of gcc will run a program called
"fixincludes" which fixes (and copies) the include files on the system. 
You'll definitely need to either download a copy of gcc for solaris 2.7
(sunfreeware.com as suggested) or bootstrap your own copy from the
system compiler.

Nope.  Not a make bug.
