That's interesting.  I didn't realize there was a gcc that didn't support -m.  This seems like an odd thing not to support, but whatever. :)

I've got a homegrown patch that basically removes a lot of the GNU-ness from the configure to support Sun's compiler, but I don't think I had to remove -m.... so even that won't help you.

Yes, please file a JIRA in HADOOP and attach the patch.
