That's where I got to as well. That's what _X_OPEN_SOURCE is needed for, it adds the additional fields to the msghdr struct. More fixes for Betriebssystemschwein shortly.

I think we only officially support GCC, clang and Intel's compiler, so it'd make more sense to use -fPIC. It's probably a hangover in jlibtool.c from when it was adopted.

Do you know if Sun's compiler also supports -fPIC as an alias to -KPIC? That'd make things simple...
