I was trying to build and run gctest on Solaris 2.8
using --enable-threads=pthreads and configured for 64bits and found thread
creation failed. I tracked this down to missing prototypes for
GC_stack_alloc/free so the pointers got truncated. I attach a patch to
solaris_threads.h to add them - with this gctest succeeds with the
configuration I was trying.
