It wasn't broken in the first place.

A "fix" would be for someone to care about AIX enough to figure out
which compiler switches are required to disable the non-standard

Or, conversely, assuming that "gcc -ansi" does that, to figure out
which switches are required to re-enable the relevant Unix-specific
declarations. E.g. for gcc on Linux:

	-std=c99 -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200112L -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500


	-std=c89 -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200112L -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 -Dinline=

will work --without-ffmpeg (the FFMPEG headers use C99/C++ comments).
