The regex functionality on Solaris is not provided by libc,

but the configure test for this is incorrect, so

the compilation fails as follows

gcc  -g -O2   -o find  find.o fstype.o parser.o pred.o tree.o util.o
version.o ../lib/libfind.a ../gnulib/lib/libgnulib.a  

Undefined                       first referenced

 symbol                             in file

re_match                            pred.o

re_syntax_options                   parser.o

re_compile_pattern                  parser.o

ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to find


Looking at configure, it tries to autodetect

the presence of regex in libc, but this appears to 

be incorrect.

configure --help should include an option

--with-included-regex, but doesn't.

configure appears to define ac_use_included_regex,

but doesn't use the result anywhere.

 $ grep ac_use_included_regex configure
