Yes, that's not surprising. There are autoconf macros 
(src/cf/solaris-cc.m4, i think) which could be hooked in, or better yet a 
test which tries to determine if a gcc which supports compiling Solaaris 
kernel modules (and uses the requisite flags instead of cc flags in 
libafs/MakefileProto.SOLARIS.in) would be nice, if someone wants to do the 
work on that and contribute it I will certainly find some time to work 
with them on it, but at the moment I don't have time to just do the work.

There's no point in testing. We know it really wants /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc. 
If you want it to not want that, it's going to need some help.
