configure:4165: checking if the linker (ld) is GNU ld
configure:4177: result: no

I've not had good experience on Sun/sparc using the GNU
as/ld tools and I believe the gcc recommendation is to
use the native Sun tools. Using 2.16 I still had problems
getting gcc 4.0.1 to properly build itself and thus stuck with
the /usr/ccs/bin tools.

"All releases of GNU binutils prior to 2.11.2 have known bugs on this
platform.  We recommend the use of GNU binutils 2.11.2 or later, or
the vendor tools (Sun as, Sun ld).  Note that your mileage may vary
if you use a combination of the GNU tools and the Sun tools: while
the combination GNU as + Sun ld should reasonably work, the reverse
combination Sun as + GNU ld is known to cause memory corruption at
runtime in some cases for C++ programs."

My advice is not to use Sun's ld.  I've had much better experiences
with Gnu ld.  I'll look into the issue.  We should work around it
though.  Did the output from configure indicate that it found GNU
