This one is already using gcc 4.5.1, so I suggest to you to report a bug
to the GCC developers, like we discussed in

Actually I now see in<http://gcc.gnu.org/install/specific.html#x86-64-x-x>
that 64-bit x86_64 compilation on Solaris is not supported by GCC:
   "GCC supports the x86-64 architecture implemented by the AMD64 processor
    (amd64-*-* is an alias for x86_64-*-*) on GNU/Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD."

Not on that target.

You have managed to build a GCC in an unsupported configuration (how?), and
now you're encountering bugs. You're on your own.


I'm afraid to say you are mistaken


GCC builds 64-bit applications fine on Solaris. It supports the "-m64" flag to make 64-bit binaries.

I have now managed to build iconv 64-bit on Solaris x86, though that was with the aid of Ralf Wildenhues, a libtool developer. He told me what commands to run manually, and the library built.

I think Ralf might concede this is a libtool bug, and since iconv uses libtool, the bug come from there. But I will let Ralf comment on that. (I've cc'ed Ralf).

I am trying to get Ralf an account on a Solaris x86 machine, but for some reason this has taken longer than I expected.

Hopefully, if what I believe is a libtool bug is fixed, and you could use a later version of libtool, it should be possible to get this to work.
