I'm not sure which symlink you set, but from my perspective this looks
very much like an inconsistent compiler setup. There are strong signs
that you're mixing SunStudio and GCC, calling GCC as if it were
SunStudio CC, to be precise - which obviously leads to incompatible
compiler flags.

I'd recommend properly removing, deinstalling either one or the other -
and if you're using SunStudio (which I personally recommend because
I've been using it successfully for years and the resulting binaries
are quite efficient) strictly avoid installing GNU binutils.

I think you're shooting the messenger  :-)

Have fun,
 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
