Sorry - maybe I'm too stupid I still don't know why autoconf is not
A lot of projects use autoconf for portable programming (at least for

(defined(__linux) && (!defined(__USE_XOPEN2K) || ...

I'm using autoconf in my projects (which compile and run on different
UNIX flavours) and I don't have such statements like:

defined(__linux) && (!defined(__USE_XOPEN2K) || ...
