I know I've asked htis before, and I'm *this* close to figuring out
how to do it, but I need to modify status/explicit-failures-markup.xml
to reflect the fact that the thread_*_lib tests are expected failures
on gcc + Solaris. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what to use for the
toolset name. Would that be gcc-*-sunos? gcc-*-solaris?
Basically these tests fail because "gcc -static" refuses to link with
ANY shared libraries (unlike SunPRO) and the system does not provide
static versions of -lthread and -lrt.
