* emacs crashes with SIGSEGV in XtInitializeWidgetClass under X,

but runs fine when called with option "-nw". This has been observed when emacs
is linked with GNU ld instead of Solaris ld. To check which ld is used by
gcc add "-V" to TEMACS_LDFLAGS in src/Makefile. Alternatively the executable
size may be used as an indication of which linker is used. The size is
approximately 15M when linked with solaris ld compared to 9M when linked with
GNU ld.

The fix is to reconfigure/install gcc, making sure that the SUN linker is used.
