Hello Mike!

I saw that you introduce _GNU_SOURCE into gpm.
This may fix things for now, but I don't think it's the right way to go
with gpm.

Instead we should remove the glibc-dependencies.

I began in src/daemon/processconn.c and will continue until it compiles
within glibc 2.8 without the need for _GNU_SOURCE.

Do you have some host I could test building on? Currently I don't have
an glibc 2.8 system installed somewhere.

I am sending this to you and to the list, because others should also try
to keep away from non-posix stuff (in general).



Think about Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).
