With a spec file:

$ gcc -specs=$myspecsfile ...

Put in your specs file:

You can see the current specs with:

$ gcc -dumpspecs

or search:

$ find /opt/csw/gcc3 -name specs

Watch what gcc is doing with:

$ gcc -v ...

I've never changed ld so this advice is untested beyond a single compile.
As the linker is collect2 not /usr/ccs/bin/ld you might have to do a
little more.
