not instantiating runtime_error objects?

Hello all,

I have a rather large application running on different systems,
one of them is a red hat linux 2.032 /w

Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i586-pc-linux-gnu/egcs-2.91.53/specs
gcc version egcs-2.91.53 19980803 (gcc2 ss-980609 experimental)

Now, this application runs fine, also on other compilers on
other machines.

I am now porting it on a solaris machine,
SunOS olymp 5.5 Generic sun4m sparc SUNW,SPARCstation-20

Reading specs from
gcc version egcs-2.91.53 19980803 (gcc2 ss-980609 experimental)

as you can see, using the very same compiler.

The bug I am experiencing happens at link time:
my application uses different user exceptions, defined 
as follows:

class data_sink_error : public runtime_error {
  data_sink_error (const string& what_string)
    : runtime_error(what_string) {}

When linking on the sunos machine, I get an unresolved

g++ -g -I. -D__SUNOS__ -D__sunos__ -D__OSVERSION__=5 -D__EXTENSIONS__
-I/sw/local_o/egcs/include -I/usr/local/include

ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to ippump
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [ippump] Error 1

Now, I was trying to reduce everything to a small example
doing the same constructs, but the small example always
works. I do a nm on the object file, c++filt on it,
see that there is no such function in the object file, but
when I link it using g++, the corresponding function
seems to get generated. Am I correct on this?

So I am rather puzzled here, as to where to start to look.

Any hints?
