Thanks for looking into this for me, i really appreciate it.
www.bioconductor.org seems to be down at the moment, but i'll report
back if i have success
I'm using GNU ld and gcc
$ which ld
$ ld -v
GNU ld version 2.17
$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc/i386-pc-solaris2.10/3.4.6/specs
Configured with: ../configure --with-as=/usr/ccs/bin/as --with-ld=/usr/
ccs/bin/ld --enable-shared --enable-languages=c,c++,f77
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.4.6
