With R-62.1 on Solaris 2.4, configure says the system has regcomp though I do
not know where it is getting that information. The Solaris 2.4 regex and other
regular expression functions are not interchangeable with the GNU regex and
libraries used by sub() and gsub(). Hence it is necessary to acquire the GNU
version and to get it into the load path ahead of the system libraries to load
it rather than the Solaris 2.4 version. It needs to go into src/main/Makefile. 
It seems to me it should be possible to set paths in config.site but I have
been unsuccessful in propogating any flags or libs from there.
