The -Bstatic is indeed the problem. If I change the command to use
-Bdynamic as you suggest, the command succeeds.

As I've noted at least once before on this topic, Solaris doesn't provide
static versions of system libraries, like the C runtime, pthreads, and librt
as well. It actually appears that not a single archive (.a) library is
available under /usr/lib on this machine.
