If a portable fix (i.e. the magical code that compiles and performs 
correctly on all platforms) isn't possible, is it not preferable to 
include code to work around the known limitations on particular systems?

If this patch were reworked so that autoconfiguration could detect 
systems for which it was applicable, and define the appropriate symbol 
to enable the code would it then be acceptable?
