So, I've found the pattern, and we should probably test for it in
configure instead of relying on endless if defined() || defined() tests.

When no __GCC_HAVE_SYNC_COMPARE_AND_SWAP_* is defined by the compiler,
the __sync_* functions may actually be defined in libgcc.a. So we should
have an AC_TRY_LINK test using the __sync_* functions when
__GCC_HAVE_SYNC_COMPARE_AND_SWAP_* is not set and AC_DEFINE something
when that works.
