Use sparcv9-sun-solaris2.* with 64-bit compiler

Before being sidetracked by the thread starting at

I intended to submit the following patch to bring Solaris/SPARC in line
with what is already done for Solaris/x86, i.e. return a 64-bit triplet
when a 64-bit compiler is in use.

This would have avoided the GCC issue tracked as

        PR target/88535
        sparcv9 gcc 7 causes comparison failure in sparc gcc 8 dwarf2out.o

in the first place and of course removes an unnecessary inconsistence
between Solaris/SPARC and x86.

With the Solaris/x86 issue now settled, here's the patch I meant to send
back then: when a 64-bit compiler (either by default, with cc
-xarch=v9/-m64 or gcc -m64) is used, return sparcv9-sun-solaris2.*
instead of sparc-sun-solaris2.*.

A couple of comments are in order:

* I decided to also cover tadpole: they produced an Ultrabook,
  essentially a portable Ultra 1/170E running Solaris 8 which benefits
  from this change should any of those still be around.

* __LP64__ is only defined since Studio 12.6 cc, so the comment still

* I chose to use sparcv9 instead of sparc64; it's the canonical name for
  64-bit sparc on Solaris.  The same would apply for 64-bit Solaris/x86
  which should have been amd64-pc-solaris2.* in the first place, but
  given that the x86_64 form is already in use for a long time and the
  triplet is sometimes used as a directory name, such a change seems
  unnecessarily intrusive at this point.

I've tested the patch with

* Studio 11 (the oldest version I still have around) and Studio 12.6 (cc
  -xarch=v9, -m64 was only introduced in 12.1)

* GCC 3.4.6 and GCC 8.1.0

* Solaris 8 and Solaris 11.5 Beta

Everything behaved as expected.

One thing I'm uncertain about is the need for testcases corresponding to
this change?
