No segfault when compiling with -m32…

With the parameters you've supplied, nginx will assume it's building 32-bit binary and will use 32-bit assembler code for atomic instructions (src/os/unix/, while 64-bit one is actually required (src/os/unix/ This expectedly results in problems.

Solution is to use --with-cpu-opt=amd64 instead of adding -m64 to ld/cc options manually, like this:

./configure --with-cc=/opt/solarisstudio12.3/bin/cc --with-cpu-opt=amd64

It will configure things correctly for you.
