I would keep the qsort_r() ABI unchanged and add a GNU-compatible version that is used only when _GNU_SOURCE (but not _BSD_SOURCE) is defined.

This would already be pretty messy by itself because some portable code may define _GNU_SOURCE but still may try to use the Apple/BSD interface under another #ifdef. Perhaps it’s just better to leave our headers alone and let the end-users do the wrapping.
