I had long meant to revisit libmudflap support on Solaris and finally
got to it this weekend.

libmudflap could always be used with GNU ld since it relies on --wrap,
but recent builds of Solaris 11 (snv_125 and up) include -z wrap/--wrap
support in the Sun linker, too.

One generic issue came up with the port: enabling or disabling
libmudflap depends on a factor (linker support for --wrap/-z wrap) that
is best checked dynamically, thus doesn't really seem to belong at the
toplevel.  Is there any precedent for performing such a test in the
target library and enabling or disabling depending on the outcome?  For
now, I rely on users to pass --enable-libmudflap to work around this,
but this could (and should, IMO) be automatic.

The following patch is an initial attempt to get libmudflap working.  A
couple of comments:

* The gcc/config/sol2.h part defines MFLIB_SPEC for use with Sun ld; the
  default is GNU ld-specific.  It relies on a massive overhaul of the
  gcc Solaris configuration that I'm going to install once testing is

* Solaris has <sys/mnttab.h> instead of <mntent.h> and getmntent has a
  different signature.  The patch below hacks around this; I'll complete
  support once the basic stuff is working.

* Similarly, pass-stratcliff.c is highly unportable.  It should either
  be made Linux-only or the current __FreeBSD__/__sun__&&__svr4__ tests
  replaced by autoconf tests for the Linuxisms.

* depends on connect etc., which live in libsocket on
  Solaris.  There's no need for its usual companion, libnsl, which
  simplifies the configure test compared to what libjava does.

With this patch, libmudflap builds with both Sun ld and GNU ld on
i386-pc-solaris2.11.  Testsuite results aren't too bad:

		=== libmudflap Summary ===

# of expected passes		2056
# of unexpected failures	288

It seems the failures fall into only a few categories.  It's probably
best to analyse and fix those before checking in the patch.  Where
should we continue discussing the failures?  Here or rather in the PR?
