They'd close it as "RTFM".  If your code uses more than 2048
symbols on SPARC, you need to use -KPIC (Sun cc) or -fPIC (gcc),
instead of the -Kpic/-fpic used by default in the X Imake configs.
The fix here is simply to use the right set of PIC flags for the
GL libraries.  (I fixed this before, but it seems to have gotten
lost in the Mesa 6 import and code reorganization.)
