bug#17773: AIX build errors with coreutils-8.22

Curious why you are calling this a compiler bug. I am not a POSIX nerd, but
it looks as if the old code was compiler independent, and now it is
dependent on something.

Just one difference in od.c that shows a change in identifer conventions.

What is the origin of the _GL_* identifiers? "Unix" or "Not Unix"?

from diff -u ./coreutils-8.20/src/od.c ./coreutils-8.22/src/od.c

@@ -1050,8 +1056,8 @@

 static void
-format_address_none (uintmax_t address ATTRIBUTE_UNUSED,
-                     char c ATTRIBUTE_UNUSED)
+format_address_none (uintmax_t address _GL_UNUSED,
+                     char c _GL_UNUSED)

I also note that the identifiers involved go back to at least coreutils 8.9
in ./lib/ftoastr.h

So, this has been known, and managed, for a long time.

It is your code, so you can call it a bug if you wish - I am thinking, for
now, that it is a dependency on something not found by default when using
the xlc compilers. But I may be wrong :address@hidden
