[PATCH] Make errno.h define EILSEQ on old LynxOS systems.

From: Joel Brobecker
Subject: [PATCH] Make errno.h define EILSEQ on old LynxOS systems.
Date: Thu, 25 Oct 2012 09:04:01 -0400


In trying to compile mbrtowc.c on LynxOS 178, I got an error because
EILSEQ is not defined. Indeed, the system itself is too old, and is
missing that definition.

Initially, I tried to find a way that would be completely generic:
Check errno.h and do nothing if found. Otherwise, check wchar.h and
use the value from there if found. Otherwise define it using an
arbitrary value. But I felt that this was rapidly becoming very
complicated, and not worth the effort. So, in the end, I followed
the KISS principle.


        * lib/errno.in.h: On Lynx systems, define EILSEQ if not already
        defined by errno.h.
        * m4/errno_h.m4: Add check for EILSEQ.

Tested by compiling mbrtowc.c on LynxOS 5.0 where EILSEQ is available,
and LynxOS 178 2.2.2, where it is not.

Would the following patch be OK for inclusion?

Thank you,
