Hm, looking at cc -E output I can see sys/cdefs.h beeing used:

# 1 "/u/NetBSD/arch/i386/obj/tools/compat/include/sys/cdefs.h"

BUT: This file is empty!

ls -l /u/NetBSD/arch/i386/obj/tools/compat/include/sys/cdefs.h
-rw-r-----   1 ks       nbstaff        0 Sep  5 16:29 /u/NetBSD/arch/i386/obj/tools/compat/include/sys/cdefs.h
HM! Is this ok so?

Anyway, as sys/cdefs.h is empty, there is no preprocessor "magic"
to #define __inline away...
Hm, but '__attribute__ ((unused))' is reduced to '' in cc -E output:

static __inline int isonum_711(u_char *) ;
static __inline int isonum_712(char *) ;

Couldn't find a #define for this in the #include-d header files,
seems sun cc (the preprocessor) "knows" __attribute__(foobar)?!

The cheap trick would be to just #define __inline /*nothing*/
in src/usr.sbin/makefs/cd9660.c somewhere but what would be
TRT(C) to do in this case?
