Been there done that bought the T-shirt!

I did a mv /opt/gnu/bin/as /opt/gnu/bin/as.gnu, and a
mv /opt/gnu/bin/ld /opt/gnu/bin/ld.gnu.

I guess theoretically gcc could have hard links somewhere, 
which wouldn't be affected by the mv.  But I really don't think
thats the case.

My bets on having problems on Solaris 2.6 and Trusted Solaris 2.5.1.

My test case loads the shared object just fine unless, there's a undefined
symbol reference in the shared object that is defined in the main program
that's loading the object.

Plus there's a huge patch for the runtime linker on 2.6 on sunsolve.
After I get a 2.6 system built, I'm going do some tests with this patch.
