I don't really consider this to have much relevance in the context of 
csl-sol210-3_4-branch, which is what is used for the compiler distributed 
with Solaris 10.  Sun generally prefer to fix the system headers rather 
than use fixincludes, and they have been advised of the nature of the 
problems in the existing header and of how to fix them for GCC (adding 
library functions in some cases, similar to those used in glibc for some 
of the macros, is possible for Sun; they aren't restricted to solving the 
problem in the header only even if such a solution is complicated and 
inefficient).  The fixincludes patch in question wouldn't be merged to 
csl-sol210-3_4-branch until at least the 3.4.5 release in any case, and 
the bypasses on __GNUC__ should suffice to cover whatever fixes Sun might 
use for the header problem.
