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

applied a patch which is very likely to fix this problem, and don't want to ask for feedback for an 11 year old package bug. Feel free to respond if you have any further problems or make new bugs.
