First clarify if you want to make a cross-compiler for SunOS on Linux, or a compiler for the target SunOS (same applies to SCO).
I'm not shure if the latter can really be done.
Anyway, building a cross-compiler is well documented in gcc. It's a lot to read, but could be done straight forward.

 What AHoffman says is right, the steps to building a cross-compiler are all described in a README (or some other text file) that comes with the gcc archive.

Thinking about my first comment, I'll say that you also may make a compiler for SunOS on any platform:
   1. make a cross-compiler for SunOS
   2. then compile gcc itself with the cross-compiler, and you have it

magic, isn't it?
