"utmpx.x" and "sys/socket.h" are correct. The problem is the KDE developer
who uses "_XOPEN_SOURCE" incorrectly. It is not the first time and probably
not the last time that somebody abuses some of those symbols to control
the weird feature selection scheme in "glibc" without verifying that
he does the right thing.
