I am not sure about the options I have mentioned with configure. I found them on a site. 
I have succeeded with configure.

I have gcc installed with version :

bash-3.00# make --version

I would request you to mention the steps so that I can follow them to make it work . I will be really helpful.

Don't do that, fix your PATH before running configure.

You succeeded with configure or compile?

Do you know what "--enable-cross-compile" does?
Are you sure that this is what you want?

Do you have gcc installed?
Do not try to compile FFmpeg with sun-cc, even if it 
works, the resulting executable is either ridiculously 
slow or completely broken.

Compilation with gcc on sunos is tested regularly and 
expected to work.

Please do not top-post here, Carl Eugen
