patch to support Sun C 5.8's implementation of C99

At some point (I don't know exactly when) Sun seems to have added a
compiler option to support C99 without messing up and mistakenly
claiming that older Solaris libraries support C99.  So I installed
this patch into Autoconf:

2006-12-06  Paul Eggert  <address@hidden>

        * lib/autoconf/c.m4 (_AC_PROG_CC_C89): Also try -xc99=all, for Sun
        C 5.8 on Solaris 10.  Using -xc99=all rather than -xc99 bypasses
        the buggy -xc99 option of Forte Developer 7 C on Solaris 9.
