It's true - that's why _BSD_SOURCE is there on Linux, and __EXTENSIONS__
on Solaris.  It's a BSD extension, but it's available pretty much everywhere.

It is.  But we may be able to work around it, I'll change _BSD_SOURCE to
_GNU_SOURCE on Linux and see if that makes everything happy - _GNU_SOURCE
I believe includes POSIX and BSD code.

OK, guess we should drop -Wmissing-prototypes by default, and just use
it for developers.  Done in CVS.

Should be fixed in latest CVS (autoconf check).

You should declare it 'static' most likely.
