MySQL 5.6.35 does not support GCC anymore

Hello all,

So, a head's up: since 5.6.35, Oracle decided that the only compiler 
supported on Solaris is Studio. There's a check in cmake/os/SunOS.cmake.

For now, the check can be overridden, so I've built with GCC5 as usual 
and pushed the new version. The usual recommendation applies now more 
than ever: use staging servers.

As to when Oracle starts using incompatible code, I ll announce it and 
in all likelihood, drop further upgrades, as I have no interest in 
dealing with Studio again.

5.5.54 doesn't have the issue at this point.
