Hmm. AFAIK no one has cared about SunOS for a couple of years now.
I was more concerned about whether there were any Solaris versions
that would fail to recognize .section.

When I went looking a few days ago, it wasn't clear that there were any
predefined symbols that would let one tell the difference --- "__sun"
seems to be the only OS-specific predefine on Solaris, and I imagine it
was defined in SunOS too. But if you find out anything please do let me
