Here's a better version:

* emacs crashes with SIGSEGV in XtInitializeWidgetClass under X on Solaris 5.8,

but runs fine when called with option "-nw". This has been observed with gcc
3.3.2 and GNU ld from binutils 2.14 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.

As long as the answer is right, who cares if the question is wrong?
