The problem is not Solaris running in 64-bit mode. After looking at
several machines I think the reason is the applied patch set on your

/usr/ccs/bin/ld belongs to package SUNWtoo and several patches affect
this package on the machines I looked at.

Every ld I found contained the string "Software Generation Utilities"
(even old ones on Solaris 2.6) except for version 5.8-1.272. The PSTAMP
field of package SUNWtoo had the value "on28-patch20011213220844" and I
guess that this is the package version/revision of SUNWtoo on your machines
as well.
