... crap.

Defines will never create missing headers.

It is entirely possible that Solaris does not have a C99-compliant libc.

However, according to
there should indeed be an fenv.h and stdint.h.

I don't know how to parse your uname output.
Solaris 10 has these and at the bottom of the pages I quoted it shows 
SunOS 5.1. Does your 5.8 mean you have >= Solaris 10? Maybe you need
to install a package to get these headers?

Are you using gcc? Maybe gcc on Solaris is broken and doesn't look for
system headers in the right places. Try Sun's compiler? Maybe a newer
version of gcc looks in the right place / includes a replacement.

I'm not having much success with google.

This page
claims that Solaris supports basically every standard known to man.
It also says we're using the right define (_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200112L)

Their page states you should use 'c99' to compile the files.
Try that and see if it helps?
