Production builds should be using -O and not "-g -Ox" option. I don't 
know why the -g flag was turned on for production builds. It is probably 
a left over from an experiment.

On Solaris, you could try using -O in place of -O2 and let the compiler 
choose the best optimization level. The level should be overridden only 
when the default level triggers a defect in the compiler.

Eliot, I just discovered that the 5.x releases were compiled this way. 
Is this an oversight or a deliberate choice?

HTH .. Subbu
