Hm, I build on Solaris 2.7 using gcc and GNU make on a daily basis...

That's just so weird.

I believe those are gcc symbols present in libgcc.

I found one suggestion solution
[] that


    On Solaris x86, the default PERL configuration, and preferred, is to use
    the ld linker that comes with the OS, not gcc. Unfortunately during the
    OpenSSL build process, gcc generates in libcrypto.a, from bn_word.c, the
    undefined symbol __umoddi3, which is supposed to be later resolved by
    gcc from libgcc.a

    The system ld linker does not know about libgcc.a by default, so when
    building Crypt::SSLeay, there is a linker error for __umoddi3


    The fix for this symlink your libgcc.a to some standard directory like
    /usr/local/lib, so that the system linker, ld, can find it when building

I have no idea why you got 7.8.1 working. This problem doesn't seem to be
very curl-specific.
