just for the record (so i don't forget later on), _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED
was required for older hpux operating systems (h_errno not defined,
etc).  i've found references (google hits) of it doing no harm in recent
versions and actually "fixing" older versions (like i mentioned above)
for other packages too, so retaining it should be the right thing to do.
