           Summary: Code uses _GNU_SOURCE to determine locale facilities
                    are available
           Product: Mesa
           Version: 7.9
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: mesa-dev at lists.freedesktop.org

In two places, the code use #if defined(_GNU_SOURCE) to determine whether
certain locale facilities are present in the environment.

I suspect the code wants to test whether the C library is the GNU C library,
which is __GLIBC__.  _GNU_SOURCE is something the source file sets to tell the
GNU C Library header files that the code is designed for GNU extensions in that

Incidentally, just having GNU C Library isn't enough to know these facilities
are available.  It takes a recent version of it.  For example, I found GNU C
Library Version 2.2.2 does not have them.

The two places are:
