The Problem is caused by -z text.

-z text doesn't come from the following block in aclocal.m4, which instead tries to fix the problem with line SHLIB_LD="$CC -shared".

      if test `echo "$egg_cv_var_system_release" | cut -d . -f 1` = 5; then
        # Solaris
        if test -n "$GCC"; then
          SHLIB_CC="$CC -fPIC"
          SHLIB_LD="$CC -shared"
          SHLIB_CC="$CC -KPIC"
          SHLIB_LD="$CC -G -z text"
        # SunOS 4
        SHLIB_CC="$CC -PIC"

-z text comes from aclocal.m4 line AC_SUBST(SHLIB_LD, $TCL_SHLIB_LD), which is executed long after the block above and rendering it ineffective, see alsothe following output of configure:

checking for Tcl linker... ${CC} -G -z text ${LDFLAGS}
