ld has been inconsistently upgraded on the buildfarm

Hello all,

Regularly, I'm having silly issues with linking on the buildfarm with 
different behaviour on x86 and sparc.
This time, in krb5-lib: with the same recipe, some binaries get linked 
to libintl.so on unstable10s, and they don't on unstable10x.
On my home system, x86, they do get linked.

I'm noticing that ld on the buildfarm is not at all consistent:

At home:
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin        10300 janv 14  2013 /usr/ccs/bin/ld

$ ls -l /usr/ccs/bin/ld
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin        10788 Jan 16  2013 /usr/ccs/bin/ld

$ ls -l /usr/ccs/bin/ld
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin        10172 Jul  4  2011 /usr/ccs/bin/ld

Since it's part of the kernel patch, I gather that unstable10x was kept 
back for some reason, as its kernel is older.

Can unstable10x be upgraded? I am reasonably sure it would fix some of 
the linking issues I'm hitting right now.

Thanks in advance,
