Thanks for reporting this and digging up a solution!

The attached patch should integrate this fix into the collectd build
system. Could you please verify that this works for you? I don't have
Solaris around to test the patch myself.

The patch is also available in the sh/collectd-4.8 branch in
git://git.tokkee.org/collectd.git (to be merged by Florian, who will
then merge it into 4.9 and master).

To apply the patch, do (in the toplevel source directory):

  patch -p1 < posix4-check.patch

To rebuild the build system, do:

  make configure

If that does not work (e.g., in case your autoconf version does not
match), do:


… and then re-run "configure".
