Oh, very interesting. CVS HEAD has in template/solaris:
# tools/thread/thread_test must be run
if test "$GCC" = yes
else THREAD_CPPFLAGS="-mt -D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS"
I added the "-D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS" flags into post-7.4.2, so it
seems this platform would work even without checking for the 4-arg
getpwuid_r version. However, I noticed that 'man getpwuid_r' only
mentions the 4-arg version.
I will leave the 4-arg check in. The original author thought it might be
needed, and the Solaris manual mentions it, so odds are some other
platforms will hit it too, and perhaps not have the 5-arg version.
Thanks for the research. I will add a mention in the solaris template
