Sure enough, there's some _XOPEN_SOURCE magic around them:

#if (_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600)
typedef struct
{
#ifdef __64BIT__
        long    __sp_word[3];
#else
        int     __sp_word[6];
#endif /* __64BIT__ */
}
pthread_spinlock_t;

typedef struct
{
#ifdef __64BIT__
        long    __br_word[5];
#else
        int     __br_word[8];
#endif /* __64BIT__ */
}
pthread_barrier_t;
#endif /* _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 */


#if (_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600)
typedef void *pthread_barrierattr_t;
#endif


So... I went hunting to see where _XOPEN_SOURCE is defined and found it
in standards.h which is included all over the place, including sys/types.h


/* If _XOPEN_SOURCE is defined without a value, or with a value less
 * than 500 (UNIX98), then set a value, so that #if statements will
 * work properly.
 */
#ifdef _XOPEN_SOURCE
#if ((_XOPEN_SOURCE + 0) < 500)
#undef _XOPEN_SOURCE
#define _XOPEN_SOURCE   1
#endif
#endif

#if defined(_UNIX03) || (_XOPEN_SOURCE==600)
#undef _XOPEN_SOURCE
#define _XOPEN_SOURCE   600
#undef _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED
#define _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED     1
#undef _POSIX_C_SOURCE
#define _POSIX_C_SOURCE 200112L
#undef _THREAD_SAFE
#define _THREAD_SAFE
#endif

#if defined(_UNIX98) || (_XOPEN_SOURCE==500)
#undef _XOPEN_SOURCE
#define _XOPEN_SOURCE   500
#undef _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED
#define _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED     1
#endif

#ifdef _UNIX95
#undef _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED
#define _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED     1
#endif

#if (_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED==1)
#ifndef _XOPEN_SOURCE
#define _XOPEN_SOURCE   1
#endif /* _XOPEN_SOURCE */
#endif /* _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED */

#ifdef _XOPEN_SOURCE
#ifndef _POSIX_SOURCE
#define _POSIX_SOURCE
#endif
#endif


I also made sure that it's not being defined or undefined anywhere else
in the include paths. Then, I tried overriding the _XOPEN_SOURCE
variable on the command line for gcc, but, still no luck.

- -bash-2.05b$ gcc -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -g -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes
- -Wmissing-declarations  -I../../../src/include
- -I/opt/dbs/readline/include -I/opt/dbs/zlib/include
- -I/opt/freeware/include -D _XOPEN_SOURCE=600 -c -o thread_test.o
thread_test.c

I'd like to believe I'm missing something really obvious here... :)
