This is a mis-installed or mis-configured gcc.  It pulls in header
files which are utterly inappropriate for Solaris 7 or newer,
thus overriding some needed stuff from the real Sol.8 header files.

Get a recent gcc from, pre-built and packaged
for Solaris 8.

(I have seen this particular combination of errors before --
the others are a consequence of earlier definitions missing
because the wrong time.h had been read and the right time.h
subsequently believed it had _already_ been read.  It has
nothing to do with PARI sources in particular.)
