the compiler that you get will not generate correct 64bit SPARC
binaries. It does not implement the sparcv9 ABI correctly.

You probably got lucky and didn't hit any of the bugs...
BUT you are using a compiler in a configuration _documented by its
developers_ as *not* working, so you are on your own...
You might want to give a shot to a current GCC snapshot from:

It should be in the gcc/doc/install.texi in the GCC source tree.
Or you can use the web interface for the GCC CVS repository:
