change to /usr/include/osreldate.h breaks ports

I don't know if you noticed this, but there was a recent commit to
src/include/Makefile (cvs version 1.247) that changed the generated file
/usr/include/osreldate.h by adding a prototype for the function
This breaks compilation of x11-servers/xorg-server and I would guess a
bunch of other X ports. In x11-servers/xorg-server the problem is that
config/cf/FreeBSD.cf includes that file, apparently assuming that
everything in it is a C preprocessor directive. The new prototype
results in Makefile.proto files that make does not accept in various
places in the config directories during make config of the port.
This seems a little complex for me to produce a patch for. You all may
have to negotiate with the committers to remove the prototype or to add
more complexity to the X configuration stuff to filter that prototype
out. Not a decision I'm comfortable suggesting a path for.
I'm happy to provide more info if you need it.
