Gcc can use the GNU as and ld, but at least for more recent Solaris
versions, including 8, Casper Dik recommends using the Solaris ld
and as. In any case, if you wanted to use the GNU as and ld, you
would have to build them separately from the binutils package.

You could always get a precompiled gcc binary installable via pkgadd
for Solaris 8 from


and use that. Should be pretty easy and painless.

I bet the ld on Solaris 8 doesn't have this problem.
