According to other posts the same is also true of HP-UX.
So I've changed the code to always use strerror on Sun and HP-UX.
For Linux, I've changed the code to:
(defined(__linux) && (!defined(__USE_XOPEN2K) ||
My Linux testing machine is in pieces at the moment, so I could not test
before committing, and I don't have access to a Sun or HP-UX machine in
any case. So be warned the fix may have typos or other problems.
Thanks for digging into this,
