gdb debugging native solaris c++ code

if I compile more than one c++-file with native CC 4.2 on 
Solaris 2.5.1, gdb-4.16 seems to be unable to read the debugging
symbols from the resulting binary.
It is, however, able to do a backtrace if I run a binary
from within gdb, albeit the c++-method names are still mangled.
It is also unable to read a core generated by such a binary.
If I compile things with gcc (2.8.0 for that matter), debugging
is no problem at all.

Does anybody know help, besides compiling with gcc or egc?
Are things different on Solaris 2.6?
