pc-linux-gnulibc1: ucontext not supported

I got an error when trying to build gcc-3.2 on a Linux
2.0.39/glibc1 system.  The attached patch fixes the problem.

Tread lightly.  Leave no trace.  Never forget.

Synopsis: GNU libc 1 and Linux 2.0 do not support struct ucontext.
gcc version: 3.2, native build
System: i586-pc-linux-gnulibc1, Linux 2.0.39
severity: breaks the build
priority: your call
Suggested fix: Don't include the nonexistent header file and don't define
the macro that wants struct ucontext.  (Kernel support was added sometime
between 2.0.39 and 2.2.22.  I assume library support was added in glibc2.
Hopefully it's sufficient to check the library version and not the kernel
version too.)
