at the moment I am trying to use bootstrap-pkgsrc from CVS on Solaris8/sparc.
With some tweaks (no root access for now :-/) I was able to use 'bootstrap'
to install the kit but building devel/libtool-base fails because the
installed compiler gcc 3.1 calls /usr/ccs/bin/ld which needs '-h' instead of 
'-soname' (it complains about 'option -o appears more than once').

Is this (a prebuilt gcc package wich uses the native ld) a
supported configuration or does pkgsrc need gcc with GNU ld?
