Yup, this is exactly why I dislike feature-test macros.  *sigh*

The hope is that _GNU_SOURCE won't do that.  Hm.  Okay, I agree that it's
probably the best workaround that we have; now I wonder if there's a good
way to put logic in so that it only adds it if it's
necessary.  I'm a little hesitant to just enable it on all Linux systems.

Maybe try to see if we can get a definition for pwrite without it and then
try again with it, similar to the existing NEEDS_DECLARATION stuff....
