I am posting it here to save a trip to the JIRA issue. Any feed-back is

"The issue can be tracked down to the interaction between the definition
of _XOPEN_SOURCE in src/setlocale.cpp and util/path.cpp, the system
headers, and Solaris Studio C . It seems that the original purpose for
the definitions has been lost because both S_IFDIR and symlink are
defined and declared, respectively, on modern Linux (edit: by default).
Moreover, it seems that the original definition of _XOPEN_SOURCE was
incorrect, without a value. I propose we remove the two blocks – see the

I successfully tested the patch with GCC 3.4.6 on RHEL 4.8,
with GLIBC 2.3.4, the oldest Linux distribution I could get
my hands on.

That said, by my reading of POSIX, to get the definition of
S_IFDIR (marked as an XSI extension), a conforming application
is supposed to define the _XOPEN_SOURCE macro (to 500 or 600
depending on the version of POSIX) in order to get the former
macro defined. POSIX also says that every conforming application
should define _POSIX_C_SOURCE before including any header. We
don't try to do that (on Linux, GCC defines _GNU_SOURCE which
I think takes care of it, but I'm not sure we can count on it
with all other compilers on all other UNIX systems).

In any case, I think the patch is fine.
