They do not appear to be "GNU extentsions", as they are also in the man
pages (looking at getnameinfo) and include files on Tru64 5.1B (under
_OSF_SOURCE, but so are the other defines that are in SUSv3) and Solaris
9 (under __EXTENSIONS__ but again with all the other SUSv3 defined
stuff).  Neither of the pages on those OSes mentions any additional
defines as being required.
