[Rd] Problems building R on Solaris (gcc 4.6, 64 bit)

I'm attempting to build R on Solaris 64-bit using gcc4, and am running 
into the following error:

ld.so.1: R: fatal: relocation error: R_AMD64_PC32: file 
/home/chander.ganesan/src/r/R-2.15.0/lib/libR.so: symbol main: value 
0x28001597b8c does not fit

I've noticed - from some lists, and a bug here 
(http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/9040) that this isn't an 
unexpected issue  - but I'm wondering if anyone has a fix for it?  If 
not, would someone be willing to develop a permanent fix for it (which I 
believe I could fund, within reason.)

Thank You
