build 'make check' in tests/cxx: error in tests.h (HAVE_SSTREAM configure bug)

gmp-4.2.1 build aborts during 'make check' in tests/cxx/
because HAVE_SSTREAM is not set in line 421 of file tests/tests.h
(see output below).
Error during configure? Header file with definition of HAVE_SSTREAM
not included?

Workaround for my system: Replace
  #if 1
then everything works and all tests PASS.

Looking at the whole directory tree closer with grep, the only two
files which contain HAVE_SSTREAM are the above tests/tests.h
and the file, which has only '#undef HAVE_SSTREAM'
However, sstream is standard nowadays according to the gcc-4.1.2 messages.

Best regards,

Version:           GMP version 4.2.1
Test program:      none necessary (run 'make check' on my platform).

     a grep reveals that it doesn't contain any HAVE_SSTREAM.
     (in fact, neither has configure).
