Sooo...here's what both 5.6.1-to-be and bleedperl look right now:

...
        ((void (*)(int)) fcn) (arg);
}

#ifndef HAS_GETHOSTENT          /* Older versions of EMX did not have it... */
void *  gethostent()    { return tcp0("GETHOSTENT");  }
void *  getnetent()     { return tcp0("GETNETENT");   }
void *  getprotoent()   { return tcp0("GETPROTOENT"); }
void *  getservent()    { return tcp0("GETSERVENT");  }
#endif

void    sethostent(x)   { tcp1("SETHOSTENT",  x); }
...

So shall I (1) remove the #ifndef and (2) make them to be struct *blahent?
