I tried the '--without-gnu-ld --with-ld=/usr/ccs/bin/ld' configure options
and my build failed again as my GNU 'ld' binary was again being found. So
the next step was to rename my installed GNU 'ld' to 'ld-2.24' and adjust
my $PATH so that the directory where it was installed wouldn't be found, and
rebuild. I'm happy to report this build was a success:

$ gcc -v
Using built-in specs.

Thanks for your help in resolving this and maintaining the Solaris port.
