Specifically: in the Makefile the option --as-needed is passed from
gcc to ld but apparently OpenSolaris's ld does not recognise that
option. I looked at the documentaion for Solaris ld (found at http://www.opensolarisforum.org/man/man1/ld.html
) and could not see an
equivalent option. It would be easy to make sure that this option was
only added if the OS (as returned by uname) was not ... whatever uname
returns on a Solaris system -- which is what? http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/9643
suggests that there is
not a unique answer.
