Darwin is really close enough to other Unices that, IMO, we don't need
a separate architecture for it.

libgcj also uses fdlibm.  We've already got a lot of portability hacks
in it.  I think it would be cool if somebody merged the two.  For this
case we have:

    #if defined (__PPC__) || defined (__ppc__)
    #if (defined(_BIG_ENDIAN) && _BIG_ENDIAN) || (defined(_AIX) && _AIX) \
        || defined (__APPLE__)
    #define __IEEE_BIG_ENDIAN
    #if (defined(_LITTLE_ENDIAN) && _LITTLE_ENDIAN) || (defined(__sun__) && 
__sun__) || (defined(__WIN32__) && __WIN32__)
    #define __IEEE_LITTLE_ENDIAN

I wonder if this changed at some point.  The above probably wouldn't
work unless gcc defined __PPC__.

This is the sort of situation where you can just add a configure
check for fcntl.h and #include it.

For libgcj we do this:

    // Some POSIX systems don't have O_SYNC and O_DYSNC so we define them here.
    // Needed in java/io/
    #if !defined (O_SYNC) && defined (O_FSYNC)
    #define O_SYNC O_FSYNC
    #if !defined (O_DSYNC) && defined (O_FSYNC)
    #define O_DSYNC O_FSYNC
    // If O_DSYNC is still not defined, use O_SYNC (needed for newlib)
    #if !defined (O_DSYNC) 
    #define O_DSYNC O_SYNC

It's more robust to find the required header and #include it, perhaps

The only really Darwin-specific change we needed in libgcj was
handling the shared library suffix:

    // Prefix and suffix for shared libraries.
    #define _Jv_platform_solib_prefix "lib"
    #if defined(__APPLE__) && defined(__MACH__) && defined(__ppc__)
    #define _Jv_platform_solib_suffix ".dylib"
    #define _Jv_platform_solib_suffix ".so"

Everything else is handled using the ordinary configure mechanisms.  I
think this is really the best approach for classpath.  Lots of history
shows that using feature tests is much more robust.  There are only a
few situations where they aren't practical (e.g., the shared library
