Perhaps you need to take a step back here - what does

  file .../priv/obj/i386-pc-solaris2.10/crypto_drv.o

say? From my reading of the Solaris 'ld' man page, -64 shouldn't be
needed - but it might possibly "mask" the mistake of trying to build a
64-bit shared object from a 32-bit "unshared" object.
