/me smacks head against wall

Really? glibc has decided to break the build of half the world?

Quoting that man page:

        Since glibc 2.19, defining _GNU_SOURCE also has the effect
        of implicitly defining _DEFAULT_SOURCE.  In glibc versions
        before 2.20, defining _GNU_SOURCE also had the effect of
        implicitly defining _BSD_SOURCE and _SVID_SOURCE.

IOWs, glibc is just being an obnoxious. I'd just drop the
-D_BSD_SOURCE altogether, as _GNU_SOURCE should pull in everything
we need. And looking at it further, it also defines _XOPEN_SOURCE to
>= 500, so that could probably be dropped, too.
