  The code I use in the acinclude.m4 test is:
          sethi   %gdop_hix22(symbol), %g1
          or      %g1, %gdop_lox10(symbol), %g1
  The sethi syntax used in both cases is the same.
  Maybe the final CC isn't set at the time that the test is run, so
  a different assembler is used for the tests compared to the actual
  I saw you futzing around with the location of the CC setting on
  sparc in the config files recently, specifically:
          * config.guess (sparc*): Invoke set_cc_for_build to get $dummy.
  Might be related?
I seriously doubt that.  Local settings of config.guess cannot possibly
leak out into configure.

The new got feature test passes.  Do you have a Slowlaris system where
you could debug this?
