we would still like the patch sent to the mailing list instead for review. and if you could split it up into multiple patches (one per issue), that would expedite merging.

I have made an attempt to rebase Igor's changes on the latest code in git. I had to fix a number of things to get this to build.

- Drop the libattr.lds file since the Solaris linker doesn't support it and move the symbols it was exporting into the export file, which the Solaris linker does support.

- Add some logic to the configure script so that it knows to pass -M to the linker instead of --version-script when not using the GNU linker.

- Bring back the xattr.h wrapper since this doesn't exist on Solaris. This is only used during build and is not installed.

- Fix an issue where locale.h was included after the stub textdomain and bindtextdomain functions were defined which causes a collision and breaks the build.
