Good question, I was wondering this myself.
I don't know enough about the gc workings, but I was guessing that those files perhaps weren't used on solaris?
I don't have a clue, but I guess that's the reason that the bug is still in the code. Normally it's the other way around, your code not compiling at all on solaris due to no pch..
