SUMMARY: gcc compiler gives link error

Original Question:

 I was asked to migrate a software group from an E3000, with 2 CPUs running
Solaris 2.5.1 to an E4000, with 4 CPUs running Solaris 2.5.1 with the November 97
hardware release and patches.

I moved the GNU C compiler version to the E4000.

On the E3000 the GNU C compiler ran fine. Now on the E4000 I get the following
message when it tries to link:

gcc: Internal compiler error: program ld got fatal signal 10

All the paths and environment variables are the same on the E4000 as they were
on the E3000.

Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.




Adding the GNU linker from the binutils-2.9.1 package so that gcc would
use the GNU ld linker command instead of /usr/ccs/bin/ld fixed the problem.

Thanks for the comments and help from:
