IIRC, I think Sander was seeing problems on Solaris with gcc 3.x since
Solaris's headers when POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS is defined (which APR does by
default) aren't compatible with C89. If you don't want POSIX compliance, then
Solaris's headers are strict C89, AIUI.

So, I'd suggest yanking this entirely as C89 is too restrictive and might only
work for a small subset of platforms (perhaps Linux, if that). -- justin
