The CHANGES file for 1.1 contains this note regarding this platform:
*) solaris-x86-cc, i.e. 32-bit configuration with vendor compiler,
had to be removed. Primary reason is that vendor assembler can't
assemble our modules with -KPIC flag. As result it, assembly
support, was not even available as option. But its lack means
lack of side-channel resistant code, which is incompatible with
security by todays standards. Fortunately gcc is readily available
prepackaged option, which we firmly point at...
Can someone please publish some more details about what Solaris and/or
compiler versions showed problems?
Also were tests failing or were compiles/links failing?
I've tested this configuration with 1.1.0c using an older vendor
compiler version and everything seems to work just fine using the -KPIC
flag. I don't see anywhere in the build log where the assembler is
being invoked directly.
My compiler is:
cc: Sun C 5.10 SunOS_i386 Patch 142363-05 2010/04/28
usage: cc [ options] files. Use 'cc -flags' for details
