# Check for clock_gettime and clock_settime, and sets LIB_CLOCK_GETTIME.
  # dnl Persuade glibc <time.h> to declare these functions.

  # Solaris 2.5.1 needs -lposix4 to get the clock_gettime function.
  # Solaris 7 prefers the library name -lrt to the obsolescent name -lposix4.

  # Save and restore LIBS so e.g., -lrt, isn't added to it.  Otherwise, *all*
  # programs in the package would end up linked with that potentially-shared
  # library, inducing unnecessary run-time overhead.
