This should be a fun one to track down.

Relevant buildbot run: http://buildbot.python.org/all/builders/SPARC64%20Solaris%2010%20%5BSB%5D%202.7/builds/69/steps/test/logs/stdio

When recompiled with gcc 4.6.3 (/opt/csw/bin/gcc), test_ctypes passes without issue (on 2.7 and 3.2).

Going to try a local build of libffi from git with Sun C and --with-system-ffi to see if that helps.

--with-system-ffi should probably solve some problems, see #12927.

The summary of that issue is that the unpatched libffi is not
compatible with suncc and any issues should be reported upstream
(at least that was Meador's and my own opinion).

After an hour of fiddling with pre-requisites, I was able to run the libffi testsuite (for the Sun C build).  The results weren't ideal:

                === libffi Summary ===

# of expected passes            1528
# of unexpected failures        118
# of unsupported tests          55

And for the gcc 4.6 build:

                === libffi Summary ===

# of expected passes            1659
# of unsupported tests          55

I'm giving up.  (For now.)

Hopefully I'll be able to rope the libffi folk onto Snakebite in the future.

    This isn't an option on Solaris 10, as it doesn't ship with a
    "system ffi", unfortunately.  (That being said, after building
    the latest libffi with Sun C, I do use --with-system-ffi in
    order to override the building of Modules/_ctypes/libffi.)

    Sun CC is supported by libffi for SPARC only.  You're right
    regarding x86/x64 though; libffi explicitly doesn't support
    using anything other than gcc on Solaris if it's x86.

    (Unfortunately, my only SPARC boxes are running Solaris 9
     and 10.  I don't have new-enough SPARC CPUs that can run
     Solaris 11.  If I did, this would probably be moot, as I
     could just use the system libffi Sun provide.)

    Side note: on my Solaris 11 x64 box, --with-system-ffi works
    (once -I and -L are tweaked), but test_ctypes still fails if
    you're building with Sun CC.

I guess that #16733 is a duplicate of this issue.
