'bundled' means "comes with the O/S".  a la sunOS 4.x.

'unbundled' means "have to purchase separately".

Solaris 2.x does not include a 'bundled' compiler, Thomas is correct.

Sun does _sell_ a C compiler for Solaris 2.x. (for that 'small minority'
of their customers that -really- need one. :)    The price for the "Sun C"
compiler is moderately outrageous, and per-user licensed.  Thus, 'gcc'
is far-and-away the 'most common' compiler for the Solaris 2.x environment.
Therefore, the necessity of the 'unbundled' description, when referring
specifically to the compiler sold by Sun for Solaris 2.x.
