    mf and mf-nowin produces same error, 

Does tex work?  How about the other utilities (pktogf, pktype, gftype, ...)?

    In all cases TL8 binaries did not work, 

I retried my own test and this time I got the same failure as you.
(I was too frazzled before to do the test correctly, I see now.)

    while those built with gcc 2.95.3 , gcc 3.3, and 3.3.1 worked.  So,
    most likely, the problem is with the version of gcc (3.1.1 ?)

So it seems.  Could you put the binaries (I think gcc 2.95.3 on Solaris
5.7) would be best) somewhere?  I'll download them and we can mention
this on the bugs page with a link to the good versions.

(Or, Kaja, if you feel like rebuilding with some other gcc, of course
that's fine too.)

Thanks for researching this.
