Only one? Just don't get me started on the number of extern declarations
that appear in .c files! :-)  Yes, I agree that function declarations
should only appear once.

As for the more general question of confused interfaces.  I think GDB's
internal structure is facing major change (multi-arch).  Consequently
I'm hopeing that that that that work will address many of those
problems.  I suspect that, at this stage, you might want to put blinkers
and just concentrate on the basic #include mess.  That, by its self, is
pretty daunting.

Good luck!
