SunOS ultra10 5.10 Generic_118833-33 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10
During configure stage the following error is produced

configure: error: No 16 bit type found on this platform!
*** Error code 1

Looking at config.log it becomes clear where this error is coming from

configure:19399: checking for int16_t
configure:19424: gcc -o conftest -O20 -ffast-math -fsigned-char -mv8 -O  -Wl,-R/
opt/pkg/lib conftest.c  >&5
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-mv8"
configure:19427: $? = 1
configure: program exited with status 1


GCC does not support -mv8 option on SPARC Solaris anymore. The configure script needs to be patched to remove any such options
