It is not required.  The bug comes and goes at random.  I haven't had
it on Solaris 2./sparc5 or 2.6/sparc for a while, but it has been
consistent on Solaris 7/sparc/x86 in the past 2-3 weeks.

FWIW, I've got it in libstdc++-v3 in the past.  Any time you drop all
the shell complexity of libtool into Solaris' /bin/sh, you're taking a
risk.
