Still though, using the Sun compiler on Linux will give you another "opinion". 
I'd trust the Sun compiler more than gcc. SunStudio also comes with a "lint" 
program too.

At least the Sun compilers compiles C.

gcc compiles a both a superset and a subset of the C programming language. 
(i.e. gcc fails to fully support C99, but has tons of extensions).
