Did you try using -v or -V?
Just try cc -v or cc -V

Compilers sometimes display their versions when compiling. 
Also note that you are dealing with 3 or 4 different pieces of software:
1. The compiler driver (This is the cc command it calls the other steps)
2. The pre-processor - may be integrated with the front end.
3. The front end. This is the lexer/parser. It produces a parse tree.
4. The back end. This generates the object code or assembly code to pass to 
the assembler.
Take a look in /usr/ccs/lib/cmplrs
