There seems to be a missing include file.  

I'd reinstall gcc,  or  as a kludge, look around for a param.h file in /usr/gnu, it might just be misplaced.

go to www.gnu.org and find the latest gcc distribution for your computer.   Or download the sources (huge!) and recompile them.

it seems that your gcc needs the machine/param.h you could also downlaod a param.h and put in a directory and inlclude the directory (dont forget the subdirectory machine). so you dont need to install
i have machine/param.h at my cygwin installation and it has:
/* Place holder for machine-specific param.h.  */

also nothing. maybe there is also a flag in  the /usr/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/sparc-sun-sunos4.1/2.3.3/include/sys/param.h which you can activate/deactive so machine/param.h  within compile command. gcc -DDEACTIVATEKEY for example

Try to Use the option "-I{DIRNAME}" or "-L{DIRNAME}", to search the directory including param.h
