Hello there!

Since I described this problem here nothing happened and pkgsrc still mostly doesn't work
on Solaris 8/sparc.

Does anyone ever compiled this package successfully?

Compiling lang/perl package I get an error with ld

[root@ perl5]$ type ld
ld is /usr/ccs/bin/ld
[root@ perl5]$ bmake

And so on.

Thanks in advance.
