The bug hasn't been acknowledged by binutils maintainers yet; gcc
maintainers report many problems with binutils, but have not
identified any specific problem.

So, unless somebody looks down into the details and studies the
resulting binaries, it may be a matter of months for a fix to
appear. Until then, binutils 2.13 should be avoided on Solaris.

gcc 3.2 is fine, binutils 2.13 is not - use 2.12 or the system tools
