OK, thanks! The task now becomes how do we distinguish between systems
with and without strerror_r?
Do you know if <cstring> and/or <string.h> come with Solaris or with the
Sun compiler or perhaps separate from either?
Boost's 1.34.0 regression test config_info is reporting:
Sun compiler version 0x580
If the header comes with the compiler, perhaps we can use the
__SUNPRO_CC value to discriminate.
