Well, it builds and bootstraps successfully if I remove #define XOPEN_SOURCE in mmap_unix.c, so it seems all we need is just another guard for that #define.

My understanding from [^] [^]

is that Solaris is a bit too clever and refuses to combine the "modern" setting -std=c99 with the "old" requirement (#define _XOPEN_SOURCE 500), which corresponds to a pre-2000 POSIX standard. It either accepts _XOPEN_SOURCE 500 with an older C version (eg. -std=c89), or a modern language requirement with a more recent standard requirement, eg. _XOPEN_SOURCE 600.

Could you confirm that the build also works if you replace the _XOPEN_SOURCE definition by 600 instead of 500?

(I think in that case it might be a better fix than just disabling the define, as some other functions may test for this _XOPEN_SOURCE define for availability.)

Thanks. Defining it to 600 compiles (bytecode compiler). 4.02 compiles too.

(I see flag _XOPEN_SOURCE is added in 4.00.0).

By the way, It seems that running unit test requires native compiler, and configure reports no native compiler on Sparc Solaris, so I can't run test. It's unclear if all functions are working correctly.

I'll build on Linux and Mac to see if this change affects anything.

OK. No regression found on Linux and Mac OS.

Could you send the update to 600 as a pull request maybe? I don't know much about why this requirement was put here and what upgrading it impacts, but the PR would be a place to gather feedback from people that know better.

Yes, that's what I was thinking. See GPR#588. [^]

GPR#588 was merged (commit 8e2cf44).
