ok, great :)  As I said, we do need to revisit the configure-time checks which
determine whether to use nanonsleep and sched_yield. Doing so is on my TODO
list so I'm going to confirm this PR but as an enhancement rather than a bug.

For the benefit of the other maintainers: in some off-list discussion with
Rainer I suggested that we might want to use --enable-libstdcxx-time by default
on Solaris because sched_yield is defined in libposix4 and doesn't depend on
libpthread.  Additionally, we should note that librt(3LIB) on Solaris says:
"The name libposix4 is maintained for backward compatibility and should be
avoided. librt is the preferred name for this library."
