Re: Patch: tfformat.c doesn't compile under hpux 10.20

Ulrich's opinion was that the hpux 10.20 headers are not standards compliant
and should be fixed.  While it's true the behaviour is not POSIX/XOPEN
compliant, the standard gcc namespace for hpux is _HPUX_SOURCE which
defines everything, including all hpux extensions.  Thus, the problem can't
be fixed without possibly breaking other code.

Does the hpux community think that this misfeature should be fixed?
