Yes, a self-built coreutils on that machine can once again 'touch'.  I'm
pushing this.  Does this also deserve a NEWS entry?  I'm not quite sure
how it would be worded; maybe:

  cp, mv, and touch no longer crash when setting file times on Solaris
  10 [latent bug since at least coreutils-5.97, exposed by recent
  Solaris patch]

And I don't know whether to state that the bug was introduced in 8.1
(the point at where the gnulib utimens.m4 file was broken) or earlier
(since we have a definitive report of 5.97 not working, but not
intermediate versions; also recalling that utimens was moved from
coreutils over to gnulib between 5.97 and 8.1 and has seen quite a lot
of churn over the years).
