Wow, that's old. I recall fixing that bug some time ago in the GNU sources. I can't reproduce the problem on the oldest Solaris box I have easy access to:

$ echo foo >a
$ echo foo >b
$ echo bar >c
$ gzgrep foo *
$ gzgrep -h foo *
$ uname -srvmpi
SunOS 5.10 Generic_147440-19 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-280R
$ gzgrep --version | sed 1q
gzgrep (gzip) 1.5

My guess is that you need to bring your Solaris machine up-to-date, by installing the usual patches from Oracle. Probably should be doing that anyway, as unpatched machines can be dangerous.
