I've tried to compile it on my Solaris 10 on AMD64 but the configure scripts fail
with the following error:

config.status: executing default commands
configure: configuring in libatomic_ops
mkdir: "libatomic_ops": Exists but is not a directory
configure: error: cannot create directory "libatomic_ops"

But when I do a `ls' in the directory, I can see that `libatomic_ops' is a
symbolic link to `libatomic_ops-1.1'.
