The developer/gcc-49 package installs an incorrect version of /usr/gcc/4.9/include/c++/4.9.4/i386-pc-solaris2.11/bits/os_defines.h . This file contains the following text:

/* Solaris 9 uses the non-standard CLOCK_HIGHRES instead.  */

This is incorrect for Solaris 11, for illumos, and for OI. The /usr/include/sys/time_impl.h file already contains the necessary definitions of these two symbols.

Fortunately, this incorrect information only affects c++ builds. This error results:

.../proto/root_i386/usr/include/sys/time_impl.h:124:0: error: "CLOCK_MONOTONIC" redefined [-Werror]
 #define CLOCK_MONOTONIC  4 /* high resolution monotonic clock */

I don't know if other gcc packages install this same incorrect file, but if so the erroneous definitions should be deleted from all of them.

There is another copy of the same file at: i386-pc-solaris2.11/amd64/bits/os_defines.h . Both copies need the same change.

I guess it is up to you to check with illumos developers if it is reasonable then submit the changes.
At least I do not have time for that, sorry.

#3 Updated by Gary Mills 7 months ago

I just checked a few other gcc packages for OI Hipster. The erroneous lines only appear in the os_defines.h file for gcc-4.9 . They don't appear for earlier or later gcc versions. (I checked 4.8 and 6.3). Is there some way we can tell people not to use gcc-4.9?

This is the default userland compiler.
