Is it an issue, perhaps, with Solaris *9*'s ld? (This version, 9, of
Solaris has just been released within the last week or so.)
Toomas: can you do the equivalent with Solaris 8 (and/or 7 and/or 2.6)
and contrast with Solaris 9?
Gerald: I also have this vague recollection, going back into the dim,
hazy and distant past when I used to look after our "gcc" installation,
that gcc had a preference for being installed with native as/ld etc. on
Solaris. (I may, of course, be entirely wrong here: indeed, I have just
done a "gcc -v..." on our current installation (maintained by someone
else) and it seems to invoke the GNU ones! Ah well...)
Can Dave-CB shed any light on Solaris "ld", including any possible changes
in the new Solaris 9?
