Because minires is using include files from bind, and bind does it for
reasons I don't
know (older binds don't do it). There is no switch in the .h file to avoid
that. The
issue has already been pointed out to me and I did some research. It has
up elsewhere too, e.g.
Given that bind does it, I am surprised that modern configures still choke,
but it's
an area I know little about. Advice welcome.

I will fix the -1 in the source package. Also should the package be renamed
