I haven't looked to configure yet, but if we're going to use configure
at all, then we should use the standard scripts that compute and use
the canonical system triplet.

I no longer have access to sparc or solaris boxes at home.  At work I
do have access to solaris boxes, but any development that require
"unusual" toolsets setting is basically unlikely to happen :-(
