This flag is on by default. If it becomes disabled, that means that the
tests performed by the configure script decided your system did not have
the necessary underlying support for wchar_t.
You can look in the script's log file, in
your_build_dir/sparc-sun-solaris2.8/libstdc++-v3/config.log, to see which
tests failed and why. (Look for wchar_t and the lines preceeding it.)
I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
