Hi all,

please review this small change. It fixes the gtest build on AIX and
enables it by default.

Note that even though this is a fix for AIX, a cast needed to be added to
shared test coding. This is because xlC struggles with certain template
expansions and I had to help it by providing an explicit cast.

Because linker options were changed as well, this unfortunately this
spreads over two forest parts, so two webrevs were needed.

Issue: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8171225
(top level)

Note that the toplevel change contains the newly generated configure.sh. I
was not sure if that was needed, but it is included for convenience.

Kind Regards, Thomas
