I found the root cause of the crash: my default link options, set in the LD_OPTIONS environment variable contain "-B direct", which is appended to all the other options in the link phase by the linker.

"-B direct" causes direct binding of the symbols at link time, rather than run time, and apparently the result will crash immediately upon startup in 64-bit mode, and only in 64-bit mode.

Carbon copying the pdns-dev mailing list for anyone else attempting to do this on Solaris and searching for a solution via a search engine.
