[csw-maintainers] #ifdef's for solaris versions

while a bit off-topic, since I am not speaking of software currently 
packaged, I bet you experienced this in the past while porting. I also 
hope GNUstep software will get into the packages sooner or later!

Are there reliable #ifdef's for identifying solaris? and then, in case, 
its versions? I need certain  workaround for solaris and, furthermore 
some are needed only for solaris 8/9, but no longer in 10+. (I'm 
struggling with the missing stdint.h and the incomplete inttypes.h)

Ideally something like this:

#if solaris
#if Solaris=8

On Mac, extremely convenient macros are provided where I can check for 
each evrsion, including doing stuff like "<10.4."... but I did not find 
equivalent. Since these these patches would go directly in upstream, I 
need them no to impact anything else!

Thank you. I will later report my progress.
