Hi Richard,

For the time being I'd suggst simply disabliny the 64-bit SHA-1 asm
entirely with --disable-module=sha1_amd64. I'm not sure why Solaris
would reject these instructions - I'll investigate but I will not have
a chance until later this week at the earliest (and actually am off
the net entirely from about now until Wednesday night).

You might also try using GNU binutils instead of Solaris's as?
