 Since "m4" builds fine on netbsd-9/amd64, I started looking at the build
 output.  The amd64 build doesn't build anything in the "lib" directory,
 so neither should sparc.
 Looking at "config.log", there are at least two instances where the
 generated "conftest" executable terminates with an illegal instruction.
 Something is mis-detecting the CPU and all the conftest programs are
 being compiled with "-mcpu=v9".  No wonder some fail with SIGILL!
 The host is a SPARCstation 5, 110MHz MicroSPARC-II, so it shouldn't
 be detected as sparcV9.
