[Mono-devel-list] Mono on AIX

The equivalent to _HPUX_SOURCE on AIX is
_ALL_SOURCE - and similarly this will define
all symbols in system headers not just those
in whatever the minimum standard is. Unlike HPUX
you must define _XOPEN_SOURCE as well to
get the XOPEN symbols defined properly. I tend
to try and use the minimum set of symbols to get things
to work so perhaps trying _XOPEN_SOURCE=500
is a start.
I don't believe _AIX_SOURCE exists as a symbol
that makes any difference to system headers.
