[New-bugs-announce] [issue31909] Missing definition of HAVE_SYSCALL_GETRANDOM

Ilya Kulakov report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Ilya Kulakov <kulakov.ilya at gmail.com>:

Python 3.5 and 3.6 in their corresponding configure.ac try to detect presence of sys_getrandom. The result is written into the `HAVE_GETRANDOM_SYSCALL` definition.

libexpact checks for `HAVE_SYSCALL_GETRANDOM` and since it's not defined, does not use it. This fails compilation with up to date libexpact due to a new condition [1].
