Because O_PATH is a Linux extension and it guards such definitions
with _GNU_SOURCE. And although man-pages is not the canonical glibc
documentation, it does states that O_PATH is only defined if
_GNU_SOURCE is also defined (man-pages commit 
1135dbe188a48d7fa237396ab371ebf74037c1f6 from 2013-02-13).
