Not me - I've not been building git on Solaris 10 in quite a while, and
when building on any Solaris release I normally build with the Sun compilers.

One known issue is that building the Xorg server itself requires use of
gmake, not Solaris make, since Solaris make doesn't support the "sinclude"
syntax used in hw/xfree86/loader/Makefile.am
