[LLVMbugs] Compile error on 64-bit x86 Solaris

I'm using gcc-4.2.2 and while compiling, I get the following error:

In file included from /home/zvrba/llvm-2.1/lib/VMCore/AsmWriter.cpp:18:
/home/zvrba/llvm-2.1/include/llvm/Assembly/PrintModulePass.h:34: error: expected ',' or '...' before numeric constant

/home/zvrba/llvm-2.1/lib/VMCore/AsmWriter.cpp:569: error: expected `)' before 'const'

PrintModulePass.h:34 is

PrintModulePass(OStream *o, bool DS = false) ..

Now, the problem is that the system header <sys/regset.h> gets
included which contains the following #defines:

#define CS              15
#define DS              3

(among others).  The LLVM code uses very much both of those names
which results in a buch of compiler errors similar to the above.

I have traced the error, and this header is included indirectly
through <signal.h>.  Unfortunately, other system header files also
include <signal.h> so it's not _that_ simple to put #undef CS /
#undef DS in the few (3) LLVM files that explicitly include

I have tried to modify the Makefile.rules that originally contains
CPP.BaseFlags += -D_GNU_SOURCE ...  [at line 455]


CPP.BaseFlags += -D_XPG4_2 ...

This still produces the error.  Setting the variable to

CPP.BaseFlags += -D_XPG4_2 -U__EXTENSIONS__

produces _another_ compiler error saying that 

error: '::vfwscanf' has not been declared

(among other "wide" functions).  [I have played with those exact
macros after reading through the <sys/regset.h> header].

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?  I have been thinking
of a global search/replace perl script (replacing eg. CS -> CSs,
DS -> DSs), but given different contexts where these words can
appear, this seems fragile (e.g. after parentheses, before
parentheses, etc.)

Best regards,
