[perl #85738] cc deprecated option warnings building 5.10.1 and 5.12.3 on solaris 10 sparc 64-bit

This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.10.1.

When building on Solaris 10 multiple warnings are produced saying:

  Warning: -xarch=generic64 is deprecated, use -m64 to create 64-bit 

This is because the config script hints/ uses the values 
returned by getconf which are incorrect for newer versions of Sun's 
compiler. I believe they are correct for earlier versions, but do not 
have a system to test this on. The following change to 
checks that the compiler produces this warning, and if so updates the 
flags to the correct values:

nts/    2011-03-02 10:46:06.000000000 +0000
--- hints/    2011-03-02 11:21:23.000000000 +0000
