guile build on SPARC hardware stops with USERLIMIT undeclared
A build of guile-1.8.8 with oi_151a8 on SPARC hardware fails with this error message:
gc_os_dep.c:720:37: error: 'USERLIMIT' undeclared (first use in this function)
The fix is in a well-known patch: fix-solaris-stackbase-detection.patch . The error appears only on SPARC hardware, not on x86 hardware. A message related to the patch says:
Tested on Solaris 10u9, on both SPARC64 and x86_64.
