Description 2011-03-30 08:04:12 UTC
unfortunately the solaris linker flags are incomplete.
missing is "-z defs", which causes link invocations
to succeed despite missing symbols.

this is the root cause behind 117597
(well, this and SunC++ broken symbol mangling of parameter constness)

also missing is -Bdirect, which shouldn't cause problems.

For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
