Description Mark 2003-10-22 15:14:21 UTC

I'm trying to compile Samba 3.0 under Solaris 2.6 running on a Sparc machine
using "GNU ld" version 2.10 with BFD. Also,  I'm sure the search path is
correctly pointing to the right "ld"

But I'm getting this error:

Linking bin/smbd
illegal option -- E

Tim, can you take a look at this one?  I've not been able 
to reproduce it.
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2004-10-29 07:31:21 UTC
no feedback.  Can't reproduce.  Closing.
Comment 3 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2004-10-29 10:58:19 UTC
gaah....now I can reproduce it.  It's not actually using gnu ld 
but rather /usr/ccs/bin/ld.

Try setting 

export CC="gcc -B/path/to/directory/with/gnuld"
