The __GLIBCXX__ macro is only used for the C++ library, not the C library.
If you want to check for the presence of the GNU C library, the macro to use
is __GLIBC__. So perhaps the test should be:

    if !(defined(__sun) && !defined(__GLIBC__))

Looking at the manual pages and header files, it doesn't seem that there is
any way to "enable" dirent.d_type with Sun's own C library.

Good to finally see this code on the TRUNK!
