# 1 (OpenBSD).  We're missing a case for the thread configuration.
Someone could try the attached patch, but I don't know if it's the right
way to do it.  I basically copied the FreeBSD case.

# 3 (Solaris).  The dynamic loader does not find a GCC support
library.  This is probably as issue with the installation and runtime
environment on the machine, rather than with GC.  It may be fixable with
a line in ld.so.conf, or by setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or with a
Solaris-equivalent.  Still I believe the location of libgcc_s should
have been hard-coded in the compiler.  Is the compiler moved, or is the
-R option causing trouble?
