OK, that is good to know. I will open a ticket in the future.

The issue I ran into was building Boost on sparc: I was able to
build it fine with Sun Studio 12 u2 compilers, but when I
attempted to do the same with GCC, the "bjam" build system
assumed I was using GNU ld, and it was a spectacular fail. It was
like crashing into reinforced concrete wall at 200 km/h. I
opened a ticket with the Boost developers, but they too were com-
pletely stomped. Versions I tried were 1.37 and 1.38.
The pdns_recursor issue, as documented on this mailing list by
Mr. Hubert pertains to 64-bit pdns_recursor binary on the i86pc
platform: if the binary is not built manually as detailed
before, it will immediately dump core upon startup.

If you do not mind sharing, would you please describe the
issues you ran into with the stock GCC in more detail? It would
be much appreciated.
