There is no reason for the i386 or AMD64 code to be different from what's
already tested on Linux --- the hardware's the same and the OS surely
doesn't make a difference at this level.

Does Solaris' assembler really support C-style "#if defined()"
constructs in .s files?  That seems moderately unlikely.
