I more or less agree with you on test macros, but for now I think we
really need _XOPEN_SOURCE so the compilation will be correct. We can
note it as a future target of removal, when and if the need goes away.
I'll note this to the developers, who may reply that there is some
reason why they meant it to be broken... I mean why they made this
implementation choice.
