Can't find values-Xa.o when cross compiling

Hello All

I've built gcc-3.4.4 as a linux to Solaris (on SPARC) cross compiler.  If I 
change my path to include my new compiler executables, I can compile and 
link a simple "hello world" program.

However, I want to be able to specify the target architecture and compiler 
version number with gcc's -b and -V flags.  When I try to build my program 
using these flags, the system can't find values-Xa.o:
[mark@locutus helloworld]$ g++ -b sparc-sun-solaris2.9 -V 3.4.4 hello.cxx
values-Xa.o: No such file: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
[mark@locutus helloworld]$

The file is in $sysroot/usr/lib (and $sysroot/usr/ccs/lib too).  $sysroot 
was set as configure option when built gcc.  According to the docs, it looks 
like $sysroot should be searched for the library & object files, but it 
doesn't seem to work.  Even if I specify the path to the linker with -Wl,-L 
<path>, it still can't find the file.  However, if I directly call gcc 
instead of using -b and -V to call sparc-sun-solaris2.9-gcc, it works... 
Any ideas why this might be?
