Summary: Python does not build on OpenBSD

Initial Comment:
The new makedev/major/minor feature in posixmodule.c 
breaks the build on OpenBSD.

These macros come from /usr/include/sys/types.h, and 
are conditional on:

#if !defined(_POSIX_SOURCE) && !defined
(_XOPEN_SOURCE)

When ./configure is testing to find makedev etc, neither 
of these macros is defined so it finds them in types.h. 
However when posixmodule.c is compiled, 
_XOPEN_SOURCE is defined, so makedev etc are not 
available and the link fails.

On what version of OpenBSD does that happen?

Also, can you find out why _XOPEN_SOURCE is not defined when
testing for makedev? configure ought to define it while
running the tests, and does that on my system. To be
certain, you can add a line

cp confdefs.h foo.h

immediately before the test for makedev is run.
