Hi Rich,

It's about half and half.

These are false positives.
You can disable this test (or any of them) altogether or add each
offending file name (as a regexp) to .x-sc_error_message_period, so
that they'll be exempted from the test.

These are false positives, too.
You can obfuscate them so that the test no longer spots the "offense"
by inserting a pair of single quotes, e.g., after the first @:

After a change to gnulib just hours ago, O_CLOEXEC is now guaranteed
to be defined.  Just remove that #if..#define block.
Those PRI* symbols are guaranteed to be defined, too.

These are obsolescent #ifdef HAVE_... tests.
Gnulib guarantees the presence of those headers, now -- assuming
you are using each associated module.
Just remove the #ifdefs.

False positives.  Add regexps to .x-sc_prohibit_magic_number_exit to
exempt those files.

Those are legitimate, since the -o and -a options have well-known
portability problems.
