: This has revealed another issue on RELENG_6 while rafan@ did the MFC.
: The problem is that the installworld process needs sh(1), but a
: dynamically linked sh(1) will require ncurses libraries, which calls
: ctype.h (and in turn _ctype.h), so inherited requires the new symbol.
: Unfortunately on RELENG_6 is not forced to be installed first,
: so once ncurses libraries are updated, it refuses the old bits
: as it does not provide the required symbol.
: I have discussed this with rafan@ and he committed a workaround, which
: is to MFC src/lib/Makefile,v 1.221.  On RELENG_7 and HEAD we already
: have the change so it's not a problem for these branches.
: Hopefully we can find out a way of making newly compiled binaries
: backward compatible with the old RELENG_6 world?

Maybe we should make them *NOT* be inline instead of all these
