Only compile-tested, admittedly.

You're right. But I'm afraid I'll need more specific advice to fix
-sysinfo EXTRA sysinfo i:p sysinfo
+sysinfo EXTRA sysinfo i:p __sysinfo sysinfo
to syscalls.list wasn't enough. Where should I put a prototype for
__sysinfo? I assume sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/sys/sysinfo.h is the wrong
place, since that's the installed header.
