When I've compiled openssl in the past I specified solaris-sparcv8-cc or solaris-sparcv8-gcc for sun4u architecrture. I have a sunT4-2 which is a sun4v, and I also used solaris-sparcv8-gcc either from habit or reading an article that I can't find any more. And it compiled clean and seems to work.
I'm installing a new version of openssl on another T4-2 and I want to make sure I have the right designation. This link has a chart specifying the options to use but it is old and anddoesn't have sun4v.
I saw in a number of places now to use solaris-sparcv9-gcc or solaris-sparcv9-cc with the sunv4. But why does the openssl I installed on the T4-2 seem to work with solaris-sparcv8-gcc when it is a sun4v please?
I want to make sure I have the correct designation.
