I committed this one-liner. I don't think it'll harm any other
platform's results.

Subject: [python] Fix for embedding.cpp test on SunOS
To: Running Boost regression tests <boost-testing_at_[hidden]>,
David Abrahams <dave_at_[hidden]>, c++-sig_at_[hidden]


The Boost.Python embedding.cpp test fails on gcc-3_4_3-sunos because
it tries to link with a nonexistent library "util". This library
seems to be a BSD-ism from my Googling. It exists on Linux as well,
and contains symbols like "login" and "openpty", which I can hardly
imagine this test or Boost.Python depends on.

So I submit the following patch for approval. With it, the embedding
test compiles and runs cleanly on SunOS and Linux. This is the only
Boost.Python test that fails on gcc-3_4_3-sunos, so it'll make the
library 100% pass in this configuration.
