Nelson H. F. Beebe summarized the following problem with building
Bison 2.1 on Solaris 10 with Sun C 5.7 c89 -D_XOPEN_SOURCE

/opt/SUNWspro/bin/c89 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I..   -I/usr/local/include  
-D_XOPEN_SOURCE -D_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED=1 -I/usr/local/include -c subpipe.c
"/usr/include/sys/types.h", line 487: warning: useless declaration
"/usr/include/sys/types.h", line 487: warning: typedef declares no type name
"/usr/include/sys/regset.h", line 304: syntax error before or at: uint64_t
"/usr/include/sys/regset.h", line 307: syntax error before or at: uint64_t
c89: acomp failed for subpipe.c

I tracked this down, I think, to a bug in Solaris 10's system headers
-D__EXTENSIONS__.  With that combination, you cannot compile a simple
file containing only "#include <stdlib.h>" because types like uint64_t
are used without being defined.

I installed this patch to work around the problem: it causes
"configure" to not defined __EXTENSIONS__ in this case.  This
is installed into both gnulib and coreutils.

        * extensions.m4 (gl_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS): Don't #define
        __EXTENSIONS__ if this causes compilation to fail.  Problem
        reported by Nelson H. F. Beebe with Solaris 10 and Sun C 5.7
