I noticed that HAVE_INITFINI_ARRAY_SUPPORT wasn't properly detected on
Solaris 11.4 and up in 64-bit-default configurations when using gas
(2.32) and Solaris ld.

Closer inspection revealed the following: both Solaris as and gas <=
2.28 emit

Section Header[7]:  sh_name: .init_array.01005
    sh_addr:      0                   sh_flags:   [ SHF_ALLOC ]
    sh_size:      0x4                 sh_type:    [ SHT_PROGBITS ]
    sh_offset:    0x4c                sh_entsize: 0
    sh_link:      0                   sh_info:    0
    sh_addralign: 0x4               

while since gas 2.29 one gets both a warning

initfini.s:1: Warning: ignoring incorrect section type for .init_array.01005


Section Header[7]:  sh_name: .init_array.01005
    sh_addr:      0                   sh_flags:   [ SHF_WRITE SHF_ALLOC ]
    sh_size:      0x4                 sh_type:    [ SHT_INIT_ARRAY ]
    sh_offset:    0x4c                sh_entsize: 0x8 (0 entries)
    sh_link:      0                   sh_info:    0
    sh_addralign: 0x4               

Since sh_size < sh_entsize, when the resulting object is linked into an
executable, the latter lacks the .init_array section completely.  This
seems a plausible thing to do and the workaround is easy: just double
the size of test strings.  The following patch does just that.

Tested on {i386,amd64}-pc-solaris2.11 and sparc{,v9}-sun-solaris2.11
without regressions and proper HAVE_INITFINI_ARRAY_SUPPORT detection.

Since this only affects Solaris ld, I've checked it in.

	* acinclude.m4 (gcc_AC_INITFINI_ARRAY): Use 8-byte strings with
	Solaris ld.
	* configure: Regenerate.
