OK, in which case I will close this PR.

> Do you think I should file a bug with sun about this?

You can try.  I am not sure how interested they are in interoperability with the
GNU toolchain however...
> Are there any known issues with sun's ld?

Yes and no.  No - the GNU linker is intended to be suitable replacement for the
Solaris linker, *under most circumstances*.  But, yes, Solaris and the Solaris
linker do raise problems for the GNU binutils with an unfortunate irregularity.
 Apart from the problem that you have encountered it is known that, for example,
the Solaris linker produces a non-standard .interp section.  For a while this
meant that you could not use the GNU binutils strip program to safely strip
Solaris binaries.  That bug should now be fixed, but there may well be others.
