Hi Bruno,

that on IRIX 6.5:

test-lseek.sh fails with SIGSYS.

This works around it by disabling the corresponding portion of the test.
It's rare that program code uses a wrong 3rd argument of lseek.
Gnulib is a portability library; we spend time finding workarounds for bugs which affect one platform but not another one. Programs use lseek usually with
a constant and symbolic third argument.

        * tests/test-lseek.c (main): Disable test of errno for invalid third
        * doc/functions/lseek.texi: Update.

That fixes it.  Thanks :-)
