IIRC i used binutils-2.11.2.

I have my private installation on that machine because i am not root on it
and so i always have the $prefix/bin dir (including binutils) at the
very beginning of my PATH.

I have just one 2.5.1 left. The installation with binutils gave wrong answers
for the testcase while with Sun's tools (as,ld) i get no error (for the small

I currently work with gcc-3.1 snapshots on a Solaris 2.7 box using
Sun's tools and everything seems to be smooth so far.
