You're correct in general. I have Solaris 2.6 with gcc 2.8.1 and that one
doesn't even have sys subdirectory. That's again not the exact version,
so it doesn't prove anything. However, I have a pretty good understanding
of Solaris OS include files on 2.6 and later versions, because I had to.

So, based on my experience, I'd say that the include files are OK for C.
The collisions happen with g++ include files, because of internal usage
in g++ include files, so it's necessary to wrap OS include files.
But it's not because the OS include files are broken. I had some
problems of this kind with my 2.95.1 and C++ programs, meaning some
additional files should be wrapped (maybe they are in 2.95.2), but never
with C code.

This doesn't help, because it's speculation. Now, Haydn said he still
had problems, but that's not very helpful. So, Haydn, is -I/usr/include
present on the compile line or not?
