[Gc] RE: Unreviewed^3 patches (Solaris libraries)

[Added gc list, in case someone else there has more insight on the last patch.]

For what it's worth, it looks to me like the closest equivalent to this in the current gc tree is

        THREADDLLIBS="-lpthread -lrt"
        if test "$GCC" != yes; then
          CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -O"

Thus it looks like:

a) We never got the 2.8 patch that created the issue.  I'm not sure it matters now.

b) We consistently use -lrt.  I remember that was necessary sometime in prehistory, but I have no idea about recent Solaris releases.

I'm sure I'm in a much worse position than Rainer to test any of this.  Assuming -lrt is really no longer needed, the patch looks fine to me for the gcc tree, but I'm not sure who should really be approving the change.
