sysutils/ipmitool build stops with a compiler options error
A build of the sysutils/ipmitool component with GCC on SPARC hardware failed with the following error:
Compiler or options invalid for pre-UNIX 03 X/Open applications and pre-2001 POSIX applications
A patch to configure.ac that changes the line:
CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wall -Wextra -std=gnu99 -pedantic -Wformat -Wformat-nonliteral"
CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wall -Wextra -std=gnu89 -Wformat -Wformat-nonliteral"
fixes the problem.

- Subject changed from sysutils/ipmitool build with GCC -pedantic is too strict to sysutils/ipmitool build stops with a compiler options error
The cause turned out to be completely different from what I initially suspected. The patch to configure.ac is no longer required. Two of the source files contain the line:
#define _XOPEN_SOURCE 700
Changing these to 600 with a patch allowed the build to complete. Clearly, the source does not include any 700-level features, because it compiled with 600.
