With the resolution approaching to avoid compatibility in fts(3)
now and my experiment on improving src/Makefile.inc1 going on really
well, I think I should estimate which ports are going to be affected.
I'll do so by searching binary packages for CURRENT, so some ports
can slip through my sieve.  The symbols to look for match the simple
pattern: fts_* (or regexp: ^fts_.*).  I don't think there are a lot
of ports using those functions.

Here's the exact list of symbols to be affected:
