You don't have write rights in the apache source dir. Which is odd if
you downloaded and unpacked it yourself. Unless you used sudo for that
Also, are you using the gcc that came with solaris (in /usr/sfw) or
one that was installed somewhere else?

I've compiled apache on solaris 10 quite a few times, using the gcc
that was installed in /usr/sfw

First I needed to fix some headers (this needs to be done as root)

    cd /usr/sfw/libexec/gcc/sparc-sun-solaris2.10/3.3.2/install-tools

I only needed to do that once, after that I just downloaded the most
recent source and unpacked it.
(for this you don't need to be root)

unset OPENWIN_HOME   #just to make sure
export CC=/usr/sfw/bin/gcc
./configure  (add any options you want)

/usr/sfw/bin/gmake -j

and finally, as root:
/usr/sfw/bin/gmake install
