build: fix spurious mksnapshot crashes for good
A variety of gcc bugs made mksnapshot crash with either a segmentation fault or a 'pure virtual method callled' run-time error. After much wailing and gnashing of teeth I managed to deduce that the bugs show up when: 1. gcc 4.5.2 for i386-pc-solaris2.11 is used and -fstrict-aliasing is enabled, or 2. gcc version 4.4.6 for x86_64-redhat-linux is used and -ffunction-sections -finline-functions at -O2 or higher is enabled Therefore, disable -ffunction-sections and -fdata-sections unconditionally and disable -fstrict-aliasing only on Solaris. The -ffunction-sections and -fdata-sections switches were nonsense anyway because we don't link with -Wl,--gc-sections.
