Not at all. This is interesting because Mark Kane reported this bug, and
it is supposed to be fixed with the installer provided Are you
using that version?

In fact, your solution is really similar to the provided at the
axl_decl.h(66) header:

/* only include unistd.h if unix platform is found or gnu gcc compiler
 * is found */
#if defined(__GNUC__) || defined(AXL_OS_UNIX)
# include <unistd.h>

Chris, could you check if the axl_decl.h file contains that declaration?
