So we have platform settings for

  *-apple-aux3*  (=no)
  *-sgi-irix*    (=yes)

we are missing settings for platforms I consider common:

  all bsd variants

Regardless of which default we choose, we should come up with settings for
these, at least for solaris, sunos, linux, and bsd.  If we come up with those
settings I'm comfortable with the default being "yes".  How does one test a
given platform?
