No, and I am sort of reluctant to re-attempt to purchase an Solaris license
and utilize the proprietary compiler, which shall not give us any benefits.

This is my assumption as well.
Adding the static libgcc should work here.
However, until I am back from SIGGRAPH I will refrain from
these changes which may have a huge impact.
Note: We planned to add the static libgcc for all platforms
since the costs (memory footprint) is close to zero, regarding Mark's analysis.
