Which compiler (name, version, origin) did you use?

apparently you're trying to build 64bit code on a 32bit box and that's why you get the error.

please post bootinfo -K output but I am almost sure that this is your problem and it will show up with 32. You can switch your kernel if you're root:

ln -sf /usr/lib/boot/unix_64 /unix 
ln -sf /usr/lib/boot/unix_64 /usr/lib/boot/unix 
bosboot -ad /dev/ipldevice 
shutdown -Fr

once the system is back, bootinfo -K will show you 64

lsconf | grep -i kernel
prtconf | head
ls -l /unix
And look for a mention of 64.

Thanks for all your support guys.

I am now able to resolve the error-
I have just set OBJECT_MODE variable-
export OBJECT_MODE=64(for ksh)
