OK, good.  The patches from Oracle speak about Solaris 7-9.

  Solaris <10 doesn't support the reloc at all.  Solaris 10 and later does
  but Solaris 10 needs the bug fix.

If we cannot make an configure test, we need to know if there is a
release where the assembler can be trusted.  Perhaps Solaris 11?  And
how about "Open Solaris", "Open Indiana", etc...?

  BTW, I also didn't today's email from you with the test tarball
  results, are you getting a bounce at least?
You mailbox really *is* full then.  My maillog claims to have delivered:
