In answer to my own question after a quick pointer from hubert@ this
turned out to be simply a ${PATH} issue.  There are four 'ld' binaries
on OpenSolaris two are GNU and two from Sun.  Just to make it more
interesting there's also an additional two symlinks:

./usr/ccs/bin/ld                        ../../bin/ld
./usr/ccs/bin/amd64/ld                  ../../../bin/amd64/ld

Basically you need to make sure the Sun version is on your path _before_
the GNU one.

ld: Software Generation Utilities - Solaris Link Editors: 5.11-1.622

GNU ld version 2.15
