If you read a bit more about _XOPEN_SOURCE it actually defines the version of the POSIX standard the System APIs should conform to.

By not specifying a value, or specifying value 1. It seems to assume you want POSIX-2001, and as we pass -std=c99 that causes a conflict.

From the feature test headers...

 * It is invalid to compile an XPG3, XPG4, XPG4v2, or XPG5 application
 * using c99.  The same is true for POSIX.1-1990, POSIX.2-1992, POSIX.1b,
 * and POSIX.1c applications. Likewise, it is invalid to compile an XPG6
 * or a POSIX.1-2001 application with anything other than a c99 or later
 * compiler.  Therefore, we force an error in both cases.
#if defined(_STDC_C99) && (defined(__XOPEN_OR_POSIX) && !defined(_XPG6))
#error "Compiler or options invalid for pre-UNIX 03 X/Open applications \
        and pre-2001 POSIX applications"

To define _XPG6 you set -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=600, except that causes the configure
script to fail for some unknown reason.
