There is an old GCC 2.97 version available on Tru64 now which is not 
capable of building any serious software (I also encountered some 
problems with static library linking). I suggest to install a new one, 
I've found a binary package of GCC 4.2.3 here: 
ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/misc/tnn/. More info about packages: 
https://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-users/2008/02/19/msg000417.html

All you need is to unpack the archive (it is configured to 
/usr/local/gcc4) and run mkheaders script inside it to adjust GCC 
headers (it may take a while, i.e. 1-2 hours). There is a README.gcc 
file inside the archive. I've tried it in my home folder and it works 
like a charm, no problems compiling Boost libraries.

I think it would be better to make it available for everyone.
