My work-around is:

+# gcc3 uses -mimpure-text to not pass -assert pure-text to the linker
+# this may be needed on solaris using gcc
+CONFIGURE_ARGS+=       LFLAGS_SHLIB="-shared -mimpure-text"

I don't know if this is correct or what, but it did build and was packaged

Anyone have any suggestions on if using -mimpure-text is okay for Solaris?

Also, I assume this should only be done if using GCC. What is the best way
to only do this for GCC?
