If the problem is a non (Solaris) standard vi linked to GCC:

vi <filename>

Would fail too with the same error, no?  Easy enough to confirm.

NOTE: If you compile sudo against GCC and the libgcc_s.so.1, is not present,
sudo will still run fine, unless you try to run a command using the NOEXEC
feature.  Then you'll see the linking error.
