It occured to me that there might be a far less intrusive option to still
allow a Solaris backport: instead of going the libstdc++.spec route
(which I still think is the correct way forward), statically handle -lrt
addition in g++spec.c, controlled by a macro defined only in config/sol2.h.

Such a patch could be added to mainline and 4.8 branch now, and mainline
later changed to use libstdc++.spec instead.
