The problem was caused by not having a swap device. I don't know how it
happened, but I will take the blame since I am the sysadmin.

You don't need swap for Solaris.
But when "msync" is used on a tmpfs file system w/o backing store (i.e.,
no swap disk) an error message is generated.
Casper Dik [casper@holland.Sun.COM] supplied the answer and stuck with
me through this problem. Thank to everyone who responded.
The original question was:
The programmers are starting to revolt. After upgrading to Solaris
"/usr/ccs/bin/strip" has stopped working. Here is what happens if you
try to strip a.out:
strip: libelf error: I/O error: output msync
strip: WARNING: a.out: Cannot strip file
