Default eutils.eclass useradd/groupadd using incorrect flags for Solaris prefix

I ran into this while building nginx-0.8.49 (built fine, but had to
fetch dev-libs/geoip-1.4.6 by hand and then run eapify, as the fetch
urls for tinderbox are broken; didn't investigate that further).

In my utils.eclass version: # $Header:
/var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/eclass/eutils.eclass,v 1.348 2010/07/11
17:29:10 betelgeuse Exp $

groupadd for ~x86-solaris fell through to groupadd -r which isn't an
option on Solaris. Likewise, useradd is falling through the cases to
*, which uses useradd -r, also not valid on Solaris. I thought this
had been fixed earlier, as I recall reporting the useradd issue when I
first tried to bootstrap prefix under Solaris.

I fixed with the following patch:

My eutils.eclass isn't the latest, though, so I doubt that will apply
cleanly. I also haven't tested extensively, but worked fine for
uid/gid 101 and /bin/false home dir. Kind of ironic that we still see
BSD-isms in a SysV derived OS.
