Cannot compile 20050830 on Solaris 9

The only Solaris 9 binary I could find was from his website at:

The only problem is that it is 20040309, which is over a year and a half 
old and it has the RTLD_FIRST problem.

various combinations of symlinking /usr/ccs/bin/as to /opt/sfw/bin/gas and 
back, with and without running configure between makes does change the 
output significantly. Some combinations give the Assembler Message Unknown 
pseudo-op '.half', but most combinations give the illegal mnemonic or 
dozens of the following error:

(standard input): Assembler messages:
(standard input): 4802: Error: Rest of line ignored. First ignored 
character is '@''

Since changing the symlink appears to change the behaviour, I would assume 
that gcc IS trying to use as instead of gas, but it also seems that adding 
the symlink and running configure should make it use gas.

Now Im really confused.

I read somewhere that someone had to maually configure gcc to use gas. Not 
sure how to do that at all, but now that is my next task.

Are you sure your gcc is setup to use gas and not as? There's a section
about that on Solaris in README. The same kind of problem can happen too
with ld.

Robert Lunnon makes some Solaris version of Wine, maybe you could find
