DuhNet: Pointing out the obvious since 1994.
When linking in a function from a static library which has the same name as
a function in libc that has a "compatibility" or "unsafe" warning attached,
the warning is issued anyway.
Build gmake from pkgsrc. Note that, even though glob() and globfree() come
from its internal libglob.a, you see:
read.o: warning: reference to compatibility glob(); include <glob.h> for correct reference
read.o: warning: reference to compatibility globfree(); include <glob.h> for correct reference
