Just a note on this commit: The old behavior, the creation of architecture-
optimized but non-portable binaries [on Solaris] can be achieved by
specifying --enable-nonportable-atomics to configure. This seems to
be a good compromise between all-out removal of the atomics code,
and having to deal with binaries that are not forward compatible
on certain operating systems based on simply OS revision number.
