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.
