ruby 2.0.0 incorrectly detects debugflags on SmartOS / gcc 4.7
When compiling ruby from source on Smart OS, which uses gcc-4.7, the configure script fails to correctly detect a compatible debug flag. It chooses "-ggdb3" which doesn't work, and this causes all of the conftest.c compilations to fail at build without executing.
Running configure like "./configure accvfuncdliterate_phdr=no" fails to complete the configure script.
Running configure like this:
./configure ac_cv_func_dl_iterate_phdr=no debugflags="-ggdb" works. Configure completes and ruby compiles and runs fine.
I'm not sure if this is a SmartOS specific problem, or gcc 4.7, so I'm writing it here to see if others have seen the same thing.

Hello naruse and nobu, thank you for looking into this issue.
I have recorded a log of attempting to build ruby-2.0.0-p0 in a clean SmartOS instance at this gist: https://gist.github.com/mattconnolly/5411998
This includes config.log. At the end I've tried a very simple .c program to check gcc.
The target os is 'solaris2.11'
I'm really not an expert at configure scripts and using autoconf, etc. I will help as much as I can.

Actually, I just found this page: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19082-01/819-0690/chapter4-29405/index.html
It appears that using CFLAGS="-R -fPIC" might help...
That makes configure succeed, but make fails with missing symbol "signbit". Possibly a separate issue.
Are there any other systems that use "-R" or "-fPIC" compiler flags?

Matt, thank you for reporting this issue.
Your contribution to Ruby is greatly appreciated.
May Ruby be with you.
configure.in: -g and -fstack-protector flags can't work
together on SmartOS
* configure.in (stack_protector): control use of -fstack-protector.
* configure.in (debugflags): let -fstack-protector precede and disable
debugflags, because they can't work together on SmartOS. [Bug #8268]
