OK I missed that comment so the correct define is "_XOPEN_SOURCE 600"
The other package where c99 causes grief on Solaris is
graphics/jasper. The package itself builds with or
without "USE_LANGUAGES=c99" but if its on then one of the public
jasper headers pulls in <stdbool.h> which then requires any package
that uses jasper to also explicitly set USE_LANGUAGES=c99. This
breaks ghostscript, netpbm and kdelibs at least. The simplest fix in
this case is to not set USE_LANGUAGES=c99 for Solaris.
