It could be called an "enhancement to the build system".

I call it a "fault of the build system" and a subsequent "fault of the 
test system" in that this Operating System has 2 ABIs and much of gcc
seems to rely on 'uname' to determine the HTB, that is a mistake.

The correct manner for gcc to decide that the HOST is the so-called
"x86_64-pc-solaris2.11" host is to correctly query the Boot Mode.
That is something that gcc does not do correctly on this Platform.

I do not know that it is an "enhancement" that this Platform should
build and test in the the same manner as other Platforms. I call it
a major Bug. I guess it is a matter of semantics.
