HP-UX 10.20 compile

I have patched HP-UX 10.20 with the referenced libc, sed, and ld patches.
I have installed the hpux.cs.utah.edu HP-UX depot versions of gcc, flex,
bison, and binutils.  I have downloaded the 8.2.2-P5 package from isc.org.
I figured out (finally) that I needed "CC=gcc -fpic" and "YACC=bison --yacc
--defines" in the Makefile.set in the src/port/hpux10 path.  I defined the
PATH to allow access to gcc, flex, bison, and binutils.  Everything looked
so good until the

"gcc -fpic -O -o named ..."

pops up, followed shortly by

"/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Data Linkage Table (+z) overflow in file db_dump.o - use
+Z option to recompile"

I haven't seen this problem in the last month of the news group.  Would
someone please tell me something to do which will allow me to compile and
load the BIND 8.2.2-P5 package successfully on an HP-UX 10.20 system?  I am
sure there is some way to tell ld to use the +Z option, but the only way I
know (export LDOPTS=+Z) causes other errors.  Thanks in advance.
