I am in the process of bringing up Postfix on Gentoo Prefix on Solaris 10 64-bit.

I hit this quirk or snag and it is a bigger issue than only Postfix:

Code:

/opt/gentoo/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-solaris2.10/4.2.4/../../../../x86_64-pc-solaris2.10/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libcrypt.so when searching for -lcrypt
/opt/gentoo/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-solaris2.10/4.2.4/../../../../x86_64-pc-solaris2.10/bin/ld: cannot find -lcrypt


The answer is that /usr/lib/libcrypt.so is a symlink to a 32-bit library.
/usr/lib/libcrypt.so -> libcrypt_d.so

The 64-bit libcrypt has no such symlink
/usr/lib/64/libcrypt_d.so has no corresponding symlink

The libcrypt(3LIB) man page claims that /usr/lib/64/libcrypt.so.1 does exist.

Modified test system:
Code:

ln -s libcrypt_d.so /usr/lib/64/libcrypt.so

Then ld was happy with -lcrypt on 64-bit Solaris 10.

This issue also came up in Python. Solaris 8 till 11 (at least 10) contain this bug of missing 64-bits symlink. The workaround is just to use the crypt_i or crypt_d library (I forgot which one).
