That seems like a dirty fix, I relinked /usr/ccs/bin/ld which is as dirty.
Wouldn't the proper solution be that if it could find the Gnu ld it will 
use it?
In my case it is in the path but /usr/ccs/bin is not.
Still /usr/ccs/bin/ld is found first and used.
I tried setting LD= but it doesn't help.
As in that statement:
-bash-3.00$ ld -V 2>&1|head -1|cut -d' ' -f1
-bash-3.00$ ld -V
GNU ld version 2.15
   Supported emulations:
So Makefile.SunOS finds the Gnu linker, but later it is using 
/usr/ccs/bin/ld. Where? and Why?

Another problem:
I'm trying to compile the client on Solaris 9 SPARC and get this error.
gcc -g -O2 -Wall -Wno-unused -D_REENTRANT -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE 
-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -DSunOS -I. -I/var/tmp/xymon-4.3.0.beta3/include 
-DCLIENTONLY=1 -I. -I../include    -c -o misc.o misc.c
In file included from /var/tmp/xymon-4.3.0.beta3/include/libxymon.h:56,
                  from misc.c:34:
/var/tmp/xymon-4.3.0.beta3/include/../lib/eventlog.h:38: error: syntax 
error before numeric constant
make[1]: *** [misc.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/xymon-4.3.0.beta3/lib'
make: *** [lib-client] Error 2

Next up is Solaris 10 x86, well see if that works.
