Thanks. Out of curiosity, why have old-style definitions persisted
so long in the glibc source? I asked about this years ago, and,
as I recall, Ulrich told me to buzz off without telling me why
he thought it important to keep them old-style. (I asked
because gnulib uses prototypes and there are clashes.)
