relocation truncated to fit

I have a problem reported to me in ports/111165 about ksh93 not
compiling on the sparc64 platform due to the linker reporting
"relocation truncated to fit". This is an error I have never seen. I
know for a fact that it is not strictly a sparc64 platform issue as I
have seen reference to it in relation to amd64. However, I have never
seen a resolution of the problem.I believe that this is a gcc issue.
How do I fix this? I cannot find any information in the Freebsd site
about this mysterious error message. I know that ksh93 works on sparc64
because the ksh93 developers are working with Sun to install it as a
default shell in Solaris 11. Therefore, it works with the Sun
compiler. Why do I get this error on gcc?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
