The patch to use -z ignore/-z record for libgcc_s on Solaris caused far
more problems than it initially seemed:

* Before Solaris 11 where dl_iterate_phdr is used, crtbegin.o contains
  references to
  __register_frame_info_bases/__deregister_frame_info_bases which cause
  libgcc_s.so.1 to be dragged into even the most trivial C program,
  which breaks bootstrap.

* On Solaris 11/x86 with gld, crt1.o is delivered with a reference to
  _DYNAMIC (unlike SPARC), which again drags in libgcc_s.so.1.  I don't
  yet know why this doesn't happen with Solaris ld.

Anyway, this patch disables -z ignore/--as-needed use in all those

Bootstrapped without regressions on i386-pc-solaris2.{9,10,11} and
sparc-sun-solaris2.{9,10,11} with as/ld, gas/gld, installed on mainline.

	* configure.ac (gcc_cv_ld_as_needed): Disable before Solaris 11
	and Solaris 11+/x86 with gld.
	* configure: Regenerate.
