Bug description: rand function with range always returns low value of range

Description:
------------
when using the rand function with php 4.3.2 on solaris 8, it will
return a random value as expected if no range is specified. if a range
is specified it will always return the low value of the range.

i'm building the module with -DZTS, and it is being loaded into
IWS4.1.

i've modified the code so it works by changing line 36 of
php_rand.h from
#if HAVE_LRAND48
to
#if (HAVE_LRAND48 && !sun)
so PHP_RAND_MAX will get a value of RAND_MAX.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?
$r = rand();
echo "$r\n";
$r = rand(0, 100);
echo "$r\n";
?>


Expected result:
----------------
24384
0

(it will always return 0)
