Thanks, in catching up with old email I replied to Alan's
comment before seeing your reply.

Can I task you with writing up a bugzilla on this?
We need to examine the list of sysconf calls and 
determine what makes sense in the LSB context (I'm
not firmly convinced it's even "support all of POSIX
plus whatever else we can justify" as I write this).
