I see your point too,

So you're referring to ioctl.h?

I'm not saying it's a Solaris nor gcc bug. I'm saying it's a compilation
problem. GCC cannot possibly define BSD_COMP for everything - just because
it's compiling on Solaris.

KDE is obviously written with BSD heavily targeted. But if one expects
full portability, the dev side has to take that into account by

#define BSD_COMP

Or something similar.
