That's not surprising, since I am purposely running a bleeding-edge
system to test PostgreSQL portability.  Nobody is shipping POSIX
1003.1-2001 systems yet (the standard was only approved in December by
the IEEE, and it will not be an official ISO standard for a few more
weeks yet).  But when they do, you will run into this problem.

There is no cost to PostgreSQL in normal operation, since that part of
the source isn't affected at all.  All that is affected is some of the
test scripts and documentation.  I see little risk to incorporating
the patch, but of course it's your decision.
