[plt-scheme] compile-time error for mzscheme plt from svn / Solaris 10

I recently added a `configure' test for getaddrinfo(). When it's not
present, functions like gethostbyname() and hstrerror() are used
instead of getaddrinfo() and gai_strerror(). (Before the IPv6 changes,
MzScheme used gethostbyname() but not hstrerror().)

So, can you send me your "config.log"? On my Solaris test, I configure

  "checking for getaddrinfo... yes"

but I'm guessing that yours will have "no", and I'd like to look for
clues in "config.log".
