[erlang-questions] Building Erlang with the Sun Studio compiler

I tried to build Erlang on my Solaris 10/Sparc box with the Sun Studio
Compiler 12, but it appears that you must build using Erlang using
gcc/gmake. I think I've seen a Solaris package out there, but I'd rather
build from source, since packages can take a while to catch up with the
latest release, and may not be configured with the options I want.

Are there GNU extensions that Erlang absolutely has to have? If not, is
there any chance we can alter the appropriate files so that it will
build using other toolchains?

Or, is there a way to build with Sun's compiler that I've missed?
