Why is this still in this notice?  I mentioned on this list that it is wrong
for an application to declare this constant, since this
is a manifest POSIX constant that is defined by including <unistd.h>.
See:
http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007904975/basedefs/unistd.h.html

In a follow-up post, Brad Nicholes at Novell mentioned that 
it is all OK to unconditionally define this constant on Novell.
If someone who works at Novell says it is OK to do this on
Novell, then why is this still an issue?
