Yes, I'd do the short term fix just to fix the warning.  I'd do the
long term suggestion to fix the real problem IMO which is that we
define "sun" on other targets.

Looking through config.gcc, I see that sparc64-openbsd, sparc*-elf,
sparc-rtems, sparclite-elf and sparc86x-*-elf are among the
non-solaris targets which include sol2.h.  Unless they redefine
TARGET_OS_CPP_BUILTINS, checking...  Some of them do but not all.
Perhaps we could fix the rest and then wrap sys/mman.h in #ifdef sun ?

int mprotect(void *addr, size_t len, int prot); 

but only if the above idea doesn't work...

Sure, if Mark approves it.  Otherwise I'd wait till we branch 3.4.
I wouldn't put it on the 3.3 branch yet if that's what you mean.  I'd
want to test it on mainline until we were confident it's ok.
