I'm worried that __C99FEATURES__ might do other, not-so-C89-compatible
things in later Solaris releases.  Possibly that risk could be addressed
by having src/template/solaris make an OS version check before adding the
switch, but it'd be a bit painful probably.

Based on the #if you show, I'd be more inclined to think about defining
_XOPEN_SOURCE to get the result.  There is precedent for that in
src/template/hpux which does
I forget what-all _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED enables exactly, but if memory
serves there were a nontrivial number of now-considered-standard features
turned on by that in ancient HPUX releases.  If you want to pursue this
route, you'd need to do a bit of digging to see what else _XOPEN_SOURCE
controls in Solaris and if there is some front-end feature macro (like
_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED) that you're supposed to set instead of touching
it directly.
