I tried that but it didn't work.

Also on Solaris it typically uses the ld in /usr/ccs/bin/ld which uses "-64" as its flag for 64 bit and if you put LDFLAGS out there it will fail as unrecognized unless gcc parses -64 to -m64.

Putting -m64 in CC will do the workaround but then I guess that's what CFLAGS 
is for..

simple if I use -m64 for 64 bit then all end binaries are generated 64-bit and the shared libraries are generated 32-bit and the compilation fails (ONLY ON SOLARIS) since that particular line is only for the condition Solaris AND gcc.

If I use the COMPILER which is CC + CFLAGS it passes -m64 properly to it and generates shared libraries 64-bit and the compile continues..

Hmm ... I see we're doing it that way already for some other platforms,
but I can't help thinking it's a kluge.  Wouldn't the correct answer be
that -m64 needs to be in LDFLAGS?
