This patch kind of defeats the purpose of my commit.  Why is gencat
picking up the new <nl_tpes.h> but the old <sys/cdefs.h>?  Shouldn't there
be a "-I /u2/[...]/src/tmp/legacy/usr/include/sys" somewhere?

Anyway this probably won't be fixed very soon, so should I commit something
like your patch or back out the whole thing?
