Ok, setting TARGET_CC to gcc-4.3.2 works around this. My assumption was that CC was the right environment variable (technically, it is, since I'm not "cross-compiling". This going back to the core problem of all autoconf detecting Solaris as i386-pc-solaris and not x86_64-pc-solaris.


Quoting Seth Goldberg, who wrote the following on Fri, 25 Sep 2009:


Setting $CC to another gcc (not in the path) fails when attempting to configure for 64-bit EFI if the installed gcc cannot handle -mcmodel=large. should be changed to honor $CC. I'm horrible at m4 / autoconf, so I'm not sure what needs to be changed (otherwise, I'd provide a patch :)).

From config.log after running ( setenv CC gcc-4.3.2; ./configure --with-platform=efi --target=x86_64):

configure:6612: result: no
configure:6617: WARNING: -mcmodel=large not supported. You won't be able to use the memory over 4GiB. Upgrade your gcc
configure:6624: checking whether option -mno-red-zone works

conftest.c:1: sorry, unimplemented: 64-bit mode not compiled in
