Compiling error in Samba 3.0

Hi,

I'm trying to compile Samba 3.0 under Solaris 2.6 running on a Sparc machine using "GNU ld" version 2.10 with BFD. Also,  I'm sure the search path is correctly pointing to the right "ld"

But I'm getting this error:

Linking bin/smbd
/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/sparc-sun-solaris2.6/3.1/../../../../sparc-sun-solaris2.6/bin/ld:
illegal option -- E

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks,

Mark
