Heh, heh, heh, we're trying to accommodate *all* flavours of Linux ... but a pre-1976 version is perhaps a little too far afield.

I started to reply to that before, then held my tongue.

For the record, the NetBSD man-page says that errno was introduced in
Version 6 AT&T UNIX.  _The Design and Implementation of the 4.4BSD
Operating System_ (McKusick, et al) shows a UNIX family tree that
places Version 6 in 1976.

I've never seen a UNIX-like system that does not have errno (though
I'll grant that my experience is not terribly broad), it is deeply
ingrained in "the UNIX way", and it is nearly 30 years old.  If a
system did not have errno, I'd be a little surprised if it was
UNIX-like enough to support a freeglut TARGET_HOST_UNIX_X11 build.
