I tried something to a similar effect, I manually changed config.h accordingly 
(see other email of mine) and rebuilt dirfd.o, rebuilt libcoreutils.a, relinked 
Didn't work :-(

In case it matters: I'm using 
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-install-program=arch,hostname 
--without-gmp CFLAGS="-O0 -g"

Another attempt with adding gl_cv_sys_dir_fd_member_name='dd1-3':
Unfortunatly it doesn't help
