this is caused by a not-so-good installation of gcc (what most people 
have). If you add -R/usr/local/lib/sparcv9 to the LDFLAGS you should be 
fine. If you use ABI=32 you should be fine as well. I don't really know 
why /usr/local/lib ends up in the rpath, it could be either gcc, or 
someone used crle in a wrong way, or gmp added it (which probably means 
you are trying to install the 64 bit libgmp in /usr/local/lib which is 
very wrong), or something else.
