   i'm not sure this qualifies as an insight, but i had a great deal of trouble 
building anything on solaris 8 (NB). from my notes;

binutils ld broken, make sure we use solaris ld/as
which as ; which ld ; which cc ; which make ; which gcc
/usr/ccs/bin/as
/usr/ccs/bin/ld
/usr/ucb/cc
$ALOCAL/gnu/bin/make
$ALOCAL/gnu/bin/gcc

   it was solaris 8 and probably unrelated to your problem in any case. so this 
advice is worth what you pay for it...
