We've got those with OpenCSW, but as I'm packaging the software,
I'd rather stick to "stable" versions.

I applied the patch (after removing the fix to the copyright, which
didn't apply cleanly), ran autoreconf -if, and it still generated
warnings in regard to -fvisibility.

configure:8229: checking if /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc supports -fvisibility
configure:8244: /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc -o conftest -g -m64 -xarch=sse2 -fvisibility=hidden -I/opt/csw/include -m64 -xarch=sse2 -L/opt/csw/lib/64 conftest.c >&5
cc: Warning: illegal option -fvisibility=hidden
configure:8244: $? = 0
configure:8263: result: yes
configure:8275: checking whether to enable symbol visibility
configure:8277: result: yes (via -fvisibility=hidden)
configure:8298: WARNING: "-fvisibility=hidden" has been added to the hwloc CFLAGS

I'll see if I can track this down.
At least now I know that adding -g to the CFLAGS makes the tests
pass, which is somehow worrying.
