I'm trying to build MySQL on OpenSolaris, using cmake and gcc 4.3.2

There is  lots of warnings like this
/innobase/ut/ut0wqueue.c:118: warning: visibility attribute not supported in this configuration; ignored

and finally,
Linking CXX shared module ha_innodb.so
ld: fatal: relocation error: R_386_GOTOFF: file CMakeFiles/innobase.dir/btr/btr0cur.c.o: symbol btr_cur_n_sea: a GOT relative relocation must reference a local symbol

If I change storage/innobase/include/univ.i such that UNIV_INTERN is defined
as empty macro rather than __attribute__((visibility ("hidden"))), compilation succeeds.

How to repeat:
(Using cmake build)

Branch mysql-next-mr-bugfixing

mkdir build
cd build
export CC=gcc-4.3.2
export CXX=gcc-4.3.2
cmake ..

Suggested fix:
Do not use visibility("hidden") in environments that do not support it.

The only solution for this seems to be to disable the GCC visibility attribute
on all platforms where sun is defined.
