[racket] Bulding for Solaris 5.10 AMD64

Dear All,

I have put together a little patch on sconfig.h that gets me most of the
way to building racket on AMD64 Solaris 5.10.

This combined with:

./configure --disable-jit --srcdir=../ \
   CC="gcc -m64" CXX="g++ -m64" LD="ld -m64"

Builds me a running gracket/drracket/racket.
[I've yet to test FFI, which I also need working...
  but that's for another day].

This is good news for me, I've been trying on and off for some time
to get this built.

But... I'm not getting the jitter, because if I omit the
--disable-jit I get the errors below.

So far as I can tell, --disable-jit switches the build into a 3m-only
mode. However, without --disable-jit racketcgc is build and invoked;
and it is racketcgc the
   "module name resolver: expected result of type <resolved-module-path>;
    given #<variable-code>"

Even if I try to switch cgc off, with:

./configure --disable-cgc --disable-cgcdefault --srcdir=../ \
   CC="gcc -m64" CXX="g++ -m64" LD="ld -m64"

It still won't get past this error, it insists on using racketcgc.
What can I do?
