You are correct that Studio 11 (released in 2005) is the most recent version that will run on Solaris 8. (The Solaris version matters particularly for dbx, less so for the compilers.)
I tried to download Studio 11 and found the same thing you did -- circular references. I think that Studio 11 is supposed to be available. I will ask someone to research the problem and get back to you with an answer.
The download is available, but it isn't easy to find.
The "Sun Download Center Changes" page also refers to you to the Sun Archive (My Oracle Support Doc 1302856.1). Follow that link and you see a list of products you can download, including Sun Studio 11 (unaccountably listed under Servers and Storage Systems). That link takes you here
where you can download Sun Studio 11. The one download contains the releases for each platform.
