I've been putting them in by hand, but the question is,
which flags generate a working version these days? Looks like adding
-DXOPEN_SOURCE=500 gets a compile, GNU_SOURCE results in compile

Just wondering, I've been running sm, innxmit and innfeed built from
20010222 and the rest from 20010411 to get a reliable (sorta) machine.

Just wondering if there was a known valid flags set, and why configure
doesn't use it, now that we've talked it to death... I'll go see if I
can detect it reliably automatically, before doing something by hand.

Expect patches or complaints later this week ;-)
