This works on our Solaris machines: here is a snippet from my build:

making in ./src/Wc...
rm -f MapAg.o
cc -c -O -Xc -xF -xcg92 -I.. -I/usr/openwin/include -Dsun -Dsparc -DSVR4 -DSYSV -DSUNOS_PRINTF -DXAPPDIR=\"/usr/openwin/lib/X11/app-defaults\" -DWCL_ERRORDB=\"/usr/openwin/lib/X11/WclErrorDB\" MapAg.c

(no errors or warnings).

Is the correct "cc" in your PATH? (What do you get when running "which cc"?)
It should be something like .../SunWorkShop-6/bin/cc. Whatever "cc" you are
running does not seem to recognize options that xmkmf assumes are there.

...hope this helps....dac
