Solaris had broken strtod function when parse "Inf" and "Nan". See solaris.h. This bug has been fixed for all current versions of Solaris ( 8, 9, 10). See

Workaround is not necessary now, but I'm not sure if workaround removing is good idea. There are some possible variants:

1) keep workaround in the code for compatibility with unpatched system and adjust comment in solaris.h

2) remove workaround and mention required Solaris patch in the Solaris.FAQ document

3) add some test into configure script and use workaround only on unpatched system. (It should be nightmare for packagers)

Any suggestion?

                Thanks Zdenek
