The below compile error happens when compiling on OpenSolaris 2008.11 (not tested on other OSs):

    against symbol		    offset	in file
strstr                              0x165     	../strings/.libs/libmystringslt.a(strings-x86.o)
ld: fatal: relocations remain against allocatable but non-writable sections
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake[2]: *** [libmysqlclient.la] Error 1
gmake[2]: Leaving directory `/export/home/miguel/bzr/mysql-6.0-build/libmysql'
gmake[1]: *** [all] Error 2
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/export/home/miguel/bzr/mysql-6.0-build/libmysql'
gmake: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Source trees 5.1 and 5.0 compile without problems.

How to repeat:
Compile latest 6.0 source on OpenSolaris.

Suggested fix:

The work around is *not* to specify --enable-assembler to configure,
as it will produce code not accepted to be position independent by
the linker on OpenSolaris. See

Script is not supported. Bug will eventually go away due to us restructuring these scripts.
