SUMMARY: SunPro compiler error

 I solved my own problem - should have given it some thought before
 posting, I guess. In comparing file sizes and time stamps for
 files like /usr/lib/{libelf.a,}, it's clear that these
 files differed from machines on which compiling wasn't a problem.
 I re-applied patch 103627-02, even though the patch was supposedly
 already installed (according to showrev -p), and that updated the
 files like libelf.a and which had mysteriously reverted
 to an earlier version. And compiling now works as expected ...
