The new C++ stdbool.h test shows a compilation error on Solaris 10 with
CC=cc, CXX=CC:

gmake[4]: Entering directory '/home/haible/testdir1/build-x86-64-cc/gltests'

gmake[4]: *** [Makefile:9878: test-stdbool-c++.o] Error 1

This patch fixes it.

        Fix compilation errors in C++ mode on Solaris 10.
        * m4/stdbool.m4 (AM_STDBOOL_H): Require AC_CANONICAL_HOST. Set STDBOOL_H
        to non-empty on Solaris with a non-GCC compiler.
        * doc/posix-headers/stdbool.texi: Mention the Solaris issue.
