Because when you installed gcc on Solaris, it probably installed into
/usr/local/bin, which means it'll search /usr/local/include for
headers.  gcc on FreeBSD is the default compiler, is installed in
/usr/bin, and does not search /usr/local/include.  I bet if you were to
run Solaris' default cc, it wouldn't search /usr/local/include either.
