I had a similar problem on Solaris 9. Colin Keith kindly gave me the
following instructions, which solved the problem:
"Seems to be that you've been using GNU strip, not solaris' strip and
you've taken out too many/the wrong symbols. Put /usr/ccs/bin on your path
before wherever you have GNU strip and rebuild. That's meant to help."
Perhaps you have an analogous problem?
