Wrong assembler used with gcc 4.3.0 on Solaris 9

Hi Dennis.

Solaris is only the host and the target is powerpc-eabi.   We are
upgrading from 2.95 (I think its 2.95, I can't remember right now) to
4.2.0.  The binutils and gcc builds appeared to be ok, but when I tried
to do a compile, the 2.95 assembler was being called.  I posted here on
this problem a few weeks ago and got no response.

Why would you use binutils when Solaris provides a native as and ld ?
