Yikes! I don't usually mind conforming to standards, but '-Dunix' is as
old as the OS itself, which should be good ebough for a standard itself;
and I thought it was in fact actually specified by one of the POSI -- it

I for one will be adding it back in if it disappears -- I'd rather
maintain one more local patch to NetBSD than attempt to fix a zillion
third party packages.....
