Re: --disable-ldbm won't build (ITS#586)

Logged as a Sun compiler bug, #4345304.  A reasonable work around
is to include -xildoff with any compiler flags that ask for optimization.

      The bugid is 4345304 and I will let you know if there is any work on that .. or 
      you check it in sunsolve for resolution.  It will take a while to go to sunsolve 
      .Initial testing on this reveals that the link will succeed if either
      - you turn off the incremental linker (-xildoff) or
       remove -g from the link command line.
      here is another workaround:
      adding a file zippo.c that is also compiled -O to the archive, but having a
      non-zero text section, fixes the problem for ILD.

      Sure; I didn't have time to assemble make file & wrap but this
      should do:
      #include <stdio.h>
      main() {
        printf( "Hello!\n");

      cc -g -O -c version.c
      ar ru libldbm.a ldbm.o version.o

      ar ru libldbm.a ldbm.o version.o
      cc -g -o hello hello.o libldbm.a
      % hello
      Thanks, let me know how it goes. ==mwh
