Re: port of omniorb


I agree with you I think there is a bug. My question was not on what the 
definition of X_OK is but why it is as indicated by robert collins.

As a matter of fact, to end with mico, I only made the modification 
indicated in my other mail and the compilation posed no other problem. 
So I return to omniORB.
