Ant+cpptasks doesn't attempt to do any capability sniffing.  That is  
like blaming make for a problem in configure.  log4cxx doesn't call  
sigwait directly, so you are likely seeing an APR build problem,  
though maybe one that is specific to how log4cxx builds APR.

There appear to be several issues with log4cxx on Solaris.  Maybe  
some are related to the use of ant but it appears that at least some  
of them are related to other issues.  I've got an x86 Solaris media  
kit at home and one of my to-do list items is to get a Solaris build  
machine up so I can knock these down.

I've added bug logcxx-92 (http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ 
LOGCXX-92) for this and marked it as blocking our next release  
0.9.8.   Before 0.9.8, we should have Solaris builds with both  
autotools or ant.
