[cs631apue] stat timespec vs time_t

I'm having compiling issues using struct stat.

I include

#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>

but for some reasons,

the field struct stat.st_mtime of type time_t could not be resolved. 
Rather, st_mtim of type timespec is defined.

timespec has a field named tv_sec of type time_t which I'm assuming it 
gives me the same value that stat.st_mtime will give me.

Is there a macro that will enable st_mtime?
