Actually, I lied. I have just tested it and it does not compile for the
following errors:

/usr/src/bin/sh/histedit.c: In function 'histedit':
/usr/src/bin/sh/histedit.c:124: error: '_el_fn_sh_complete' undeclared
(first use in this function)
/usr/src/bin/sh/histedit.c:124: error: (Each undeclared identifier is
reported only once
/usr/src/bin/sh/histedit.c:124: error: for each function it appears in.)

But I do not have time to look into this further until tommorow.
