_SGI_MP_SOURCE=1 seems to work:


The other two defines I listed above aren't useful for building apr.  
-D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199506 causes a build failure because getpass() is undefined, 
and "A value of type "int" cannot be used to initialize an entity of type "char *"
in apr_getpass.c Line 242. If I cause "function is declared implicitly" to 
cause compile errors, configure aborts while trying to determine the format 
for apr_ssize_t (because exit() is defined implicitly in those tests).

Similarly, defining _XOPEN_SOURCE makes hstrerror() disappear.

I would have expected autoreconf to be sufficient to pick up changes to 
apr_hints.m4, or ideally just running make to cause a complete re-build
of all the auto* stuff, but I had to unpack the source, edit apr_hints.m4,
run autoreconf, configure and build to get the desired changes to propagate.
