With more of my results back, I can add the following to the
known-but-not-resolved list:

+ "make check" fails atomics tests using GCCFSS-4.0.4 compilers on
Solaris10/SPARC
Originally reported in:
http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2012/01/10234.php
This is a matter of the Sun/Oracle fork of GCC (known as GCC For SPARC
Systems, or GCCFSS) being buggy with respect to GNU inline asm.
The original failures were with gccfss-4.0.4, but am now retested with
gccfss-4.3.3.
I'll report on those results later.

BTW:
Due to a scripting error, all these tests are actually against the
openmpi-1.4.5rc5r25855 tarball rather than the genuine 1.4.5rc5.
I doubt there is any meaningful difference, but figured full disclosure
is best :-).
