Thanks Nick!
Actually, due to my poor typing skills, the original information in my email message was incorrect. I have tested with GNU ld and I experienced the same problem. I also sent a more elaborate email message the to Xemacs people before I sent one to this group. During my cut & paste operation, I copied the wrong information.

Actually upon further investigate on my part, I noticed a "PROBLEMS" file in the Xemacs 21.4.12 tree. This is the pertinent information from that file:

** SunOS/Solaris
*** Dumping error when using GNU binutils / GNU ld on a Sun.

Errors similar to the following:

   Dumping under the name xemacs unexec():
   dldump(/space/rpluim/xemacs-obj/src/xemacs): ld.so.1: ./temacs:
   fatal: /space/rpluim/xemacs-obj/src/xemacs: unknown dynamic entry:

are caused by using GNU ld.  There are several workarounds available:

In XEmacs 21.2 or later, configure using the new portable dumper

Alternatively, you can link using the Sun version of ld, which is
normally held in /usr/ccs/bin.  This can be done by one of:

- building gcc with these configure flags:
  configure --with-ld=/usr/ccs/bin/ld --with-as=/usr/ccs/bin/as

- adding -B/usr/ccs/bin/ to CFLAGS used to configure XEmacs
  (Note: The trailing '/' there is significant.)

- uninstalling GNU ld.

The Solaris2 FAQ claims:

    When you install gcc, don't make the mistake of installing
    GNU binutils or GNU libc, they are not as capable as their
    counterparts you get with Solaris 2.x.

Hi Brett,

> GNU ld version 2.11.2 (with BFD 2.11.2)

Try downloading the latest release (2.13.2).  This should fix your
problem.  (Note do not use the earlier 2.13.1 release as this has a
serious Solaris bug in it).
