I found the following in features.h :

#if (!defined __STRICT_ANSI__ && !defined _ISOC99_SOURCE && \
     !defined _POSIX_SOURCE && !defined _POSIX_C_SOURCE && \
          !defined _XOPEN_SOURCE && !defined _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED && \
               !defined _BSD_SOURCE && !defined _SVID_SOURCE)
# define _BSD_SOURCE 1
# define _SVID_SOURCE 1
#endif

#ifdef _BSD_SOURCE
# define __USE_BSD 1
#endif

Looks much simpler.

Sorry for my mistake, I though #ifndef would work even if htole16 is
not a macro, but it isn't the case.
