[Image-SIG] ld error with Imaging 1.1.6 on Solaris 5.9

  Im trying to install the Imaging Library for Python (Imaging-1.1.6) on
Solaris 5.9.When i run the python setup.py install command the
installation procedure ends with the following error. 

ld: fatal: relocations remain against allocatable but non-writable
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status 
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1 

Is this happening because SUN ld is being used rather than GNU ld? 

I installed the binutils 1.7.11 package which contains GNU ld.Is
installing this package sufficient to make gcc use GNU ld rather than
SUN ld? 

Any help regarding this would be appreciated. 

The details of the packages installed are 

   a)python 2.4.3 
   b)gcc 3.2 
   c)jpeg 6b
   d)zlib 1.2.3
I want Imaging 1.1.6 to be installed to be used with Plone 2.5.
