Listed for completeness only.  I was enumerating all the possibilities, and
later on, said that quick investigation indicated this wasn't the case.

(And though Sun's *current* stuff seems to be quite good, there's still a lot
of legacy boxes out there - just in the last month, I actually had somebody ask
how to get Sendmail 8.13.7 (just released) to compile on a Solaris 2.5.1 box.
Fortunately for my sanity, I sent back a snarky "The same way you got 8.13.6 to
build" - and I got back a "Thanks, that worked". I decided not to ask further,
as there are some things Man Was Not Meant To Know. :)

-X.  *that* was it.  Why was I totally unable to find that when I was looking
at the manpages and *looking* for the compiler switch that did that? :)

<makes mental note to double-check if that particular Sun box actually has the
compilers installed - almost all of my coding on *that* box has been shell and
perl scripts.  And then figure out what I found that convinced me there were
multiple personalities available, if I wasn't finding -Xa in the manpage..>
