Thanks that was very helpful.  I had a Solaris11 OVA and I ran the pkg
install developer/gcc-11 and it did lots of things but afterward there
was no gcc program installed (I searched the entire disk for "*gcc*").

So then I installed OpenIndiana based on your notes and that succeeded
and I was able to build make and run the tests.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to reproduce the problem; all tests passed
for me (I'm using a build where the ar issue is already fixed).  I
tried with 1 CPU as well just to be sure.


I wonder what can be different about what I'm doing and what you're
doing.  Maybe it's related to how the tests are run; I suppose you're
using some sort of automated testing framework?  Maybe there's no TTY
or something?  Can you briefly describe how the tests are invoked?
