true, and I'm not really comfortable about it either.  But since no fix has
been forthcoming on the Solaris 10 side and GCC 4.2+ have been
inoperational on Solaris 10+/x86, I decided to propose it anyway.

As I suggested in the original patch submission, it should be possible to
move the inclusion of i386/t-crtstuff to libgcc/ and make it
conditional on a linker test there.  This way, only systems with broken Sun
linkers would be penalized.  I could well try that approach, since it's
certainly cleaner and doesn't break unwind information on recent Solaris 11
where we don't have to.  What do you think?

What about the 4.2 branch?  As I mentioned, the patch is needed there, too,
and I've successfully bootstrapped on i386-pc-solaris2.10.  Unfortunately,
the cleaner approach outlined above isn't available here since there's no
separate libgcc with it's own configure, so I fear it's either this hack or
leave that branch broken.
