Hi, all.

Here's what I get, while doing "make depend" in /usr/src/lib/libc:

c/sys/Lint_pipe.c /usr/src/lib/libc/sys/Lint_ptrace.c /usr/src/lib/libc/sys/Lint
_sbrk.c /usr/src/lib/libc/sys/Lint_setlogin.c /usr/src/lib/libc/sys/Lint___sigre
turn14.c /usr/src/lib/libc/sys/Lint_syscall.c LintSysNormal.c LintSysNoerr.c Lin
LintSysNormal.c:28: unterminated `#if' conditional

Sure enough, at the end of LintSysNormal:

#ifdef __STDC__
#include <stdarg.h>
#include <varargs.h>

#ifdef __STDC__
accept(int arg1

It cuts off right there... Removing LintSysNormal.c and doing another "make
depend" gives me:

ac /usr/src/lib/libc# rm LintSysNormal.c 
ac /usr/src/lib/libc# make depend
creating LintSysNormal.c
/usr/src/lib/libc/sys/makelintstub: arith: syntax error: ""

*** Error code 2


I'm digging around, trying to understand what's happening, but perhaps some-
one will comprehend it on sight...?

I haven't had a chance to run through how makelintsys is being called, by
hand, to see what's being thrown at it... I suppose I'll muck about with it
and have it tell me what it's getting, when I get a moment.

Thanks in advance for clues.
