Your problem is almost certainly related to that fact that 
you're using Solaris 2.6 but:

You're using gcc compiled for 2.5.1.  Admittedly, I've gotten
away with compiling under 2.6 with gcc2.8.0 from 2.5.1, but I can
also use SunPro CC if I'm in doubt.

I'd recommend getting a later version of gcc, building it under
2.6, and trying again.  Depending on the resources you have available, 
that might be today or tomorrow :)
