using --enable-js-ultrasparc is not ok (compile fails):

when gcc is setup to use the gnu binutils (i guess it's ok when using gcc with sun as/ld) in solaris!

gcc, compiled to use gnu as/ld, does not understand -Wa,-xarch=v8plus,-DULTRA_SPARC,-P,-L,-D_ASM,-D__STDC__=0
which is set in
mozilla/js/src/Makefile.in
line 276, 277 and 279.

info page says:
`-D'
     Ignored.  This option is accepted for script compatibility with
     calls to other assemblers.
the following happens:
===
nwaibel@blade1000-1:~/fbuild $ as -DULTRA_SPARC
as: unrecognized option `-ULTRA_SPARC'
nwaibel@blade1000-1:~/fbuild $ as --version
GNU assembler 2.16.91.0.5 20051219
Copyright 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This program is free software; you may redistribute it under the terms of
the GNU General Public License.  This program has absolutely no warranty.
This assembler was configured for a target of `sparc-sun-solaris2.9'.
===
also, option -P is not available with gnu as.
if gcc is called it will preprocess the assembler file anyway.

option -L is there. man page says:
       -L
       --keep-locals
           Keep  (in  the  symbol  table) local symbols.  On traditional a.out
           systems these start with L, but different  systems  have  different
           local label prefixes.
could be ok to use it...

one solution for the problems mentioned would be -- obviously -- to switch off the asm code, but on the other hand it should not be too hard to detect gnu as/ld and pass other options.

maybe i can find a way and provide a patch here...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
compile firefox on solaris using gcc (compiled to use gnu binutils!!!).

solves this problem.

hmmm, do you really still need this fancy asm-option stuff?
maybe it was there once to assemble lock_SunOS.s, which seems not to be used anymore at all...
asm is used in jslock.c only, and imho does not need any options passed directly to as (-Wa,XXX gcc option). gcc option -DULTRA_SPARC (or not) is enough, i think.

so

could be ok as well, right?

actually i am not right. removing all options results in:

it seems that the 1st suggested patch is the safest:

can anyone confirm that this works ok on
solaris/sparc/gcc/sun as/sun ld
solaris/sparc/sun cc/sun as/sun ld
?

bug 502696 will fix this, as it
 - deprecates ULTRA_SPARC and --enable-js-ultrasparc
 - builds on GCC with -mcpu=v9 -fPIC
 - does not add the SunStudio ASFLAGS to CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS

Note that the ancient version of gnu as that ships with Solaris 10 has a bug which prevents it from building v9 code. More details in bug 502696 comment 3.
