I am afraid this won't work really well, because it overwrites LDFLAGS. 
Unfortunately, AFAIK, there is no easy way to change flags used for 
compilation and linking. I don't think this is linked to 32 vs 64 bits 
problem (though I may be wrong; I don't know much about solaris).

(the problem being about the sun compilers, I think this applies to 
sparc as well).
