I don't know of any (posix-specific) formal definitions where "compliance" and "conformance" can mean two different things, and--generally speaking--the words mean the same thing.

running `dict compliance', the wordnet definition says compliance is synonymous to conformance, so I would say that POSIX compliance and -conformance means the same thing.
