Re: Solaris 8/SPARC bootstrap broken building 64-bit libgcc

Looks good, but we could give a short explanation, for example:

 For example, the linker may hang indefinitely.  The fix is to remove
 @file{/usr/ucb} from your @env{PATH}.

+The build process works more smoothly with the legacy Sun tools so,
+if you have @file{/usr/xpg4/bin} in your @env{PATH}, we recommend placing
+@file{/usr/bin} before @file{/usr/xpg4/bin} for the duration of the build.
 All releases of GNU binutils prior to 2.11.2 have known bugs on this
 platform.  We recommend the use of GNU binutils 2.11.2 or the vendor
 tools (Sun @command{as}, Sun @command{ld}).

I'm not a native English speaker, so feel free to improve and commit on the 
3.3 branch (I think this obviously falls under the "obvious rule").

Btw, did you see other problems with the POSIX tools on mainline?
