Sun Studio 11


Immediately after I saw an annoucement of Sun Studio availability for
free, I installed it and gave it a pari test (on Sparc).  First of
all, benches fail with default flags in both 32bit and 64bit flavors.
I had to add -xdepend=no flag to get working builds.  Then, I compared
bench numbers for 6 builds of gp-sta ( self-explanatory ).

gcc32		1180
cc32		1620
gcc32generic	3220
cc32generic	1960
gcc64		1240
cc64		1330

Finally, I can't build 64bit gp-dyn using cc, I get this error:

ld: fatal: relocation error: R_SPARC_H44: file kernel.o: symbol
overflow: relocations based on the ABS44 coding model can not be used
in building a shared object

Comments and suggestions are welcome.
