Interesting.  Seems you have a setup that uses its own assembly source
file in port/tas/solaris_i386.s, rather than using inline C ASM.  There
are files for both Sparc and i386 there, and are both used only for the
Sun compiler.  Does the Sun compiler not support ASM inlining?  

Looking at the error line, it is:

        pushl   %ebp            /save prev base pointer

and then:

        pushl   %ebx            /save prev bx

Looks like it is all documented here:



        Exceptions from this rule are instructions manipulating the stack (push,
        pop, call, ret, enter and leave) which are implicitly 64-bit and their
        32-bit counterparts are not available anymore, yet their 16-bit
        counterparts are. So:

          pushl %eax            # Illegal instruction
          pushq %rax            # 1 byte instruction encoded as pushl %eax in 
32 bits
          pushq %r10            # 2 byte instruction encoded as pushl preceeded 
by REX.

Looking before that, the 64-bit registers are now prefixed with 'r'
instead of 'e', so what I did was to convert all the long/l assembler
instructions to quad/64-bit/q, and rename the registers to use 64-bit
versions. I also modified the function alignment from 4 to 8, patch
attached.  Please give it a try and report back any error lines.

Seems Sun might be interested in geting this working.  We don't have an
official Sun contact yet for this project.
