I can come up with a fix for Solaris, but all that sedding of the nm output 
in Configure looks distinctly fragile.  My intention would be to stop the 
removal of the leading '_'s from symbols, but I'm not at all clear if this 
should be done for all the sed pattern variants around line 7225 of 
Configure, or just the one that Solaris uses.
