SunOS something 5.10 Generic_118822-11 sun4u sparc

About line 2512 in configure:
      # sparc64-*-linux-gnu is a misnomer, since there's no support for any

this test
        case $host in
blocks configure from setting up 64 bit compilation on solaris 10
(see uname above)

Somewhere in configfsf.sub "sunos5" gets turned into solaris2.
setting the os to solaris2.9  (I gave --build sparcv9-sun-solaris2.9 
to configure) allows a 64 bit gmp library to build which seems
to work (passes make check).
