It used to compile... The error codes in saerrno.h were pruned to not conflict
with the existing ones in errno.h. The saerrno.h errno's are just for the
standalones and represent unique errors of this environment. Now one could
argue that these errno's shouldn't exist and one should just use the "standard"
errno's. But this destroys compatability with old standalones
(of AT&T vintage).

Now it seems to have been reverted to the 4.4 original version. Why ?

I suggest that libsa be added to the sys/lib Makefile to help catch these
errors in the future.
