mostly irrelevant. What caused me to find the problem was
a cross-compile from a solaris host.
#include "/usr/include/arpa/tftp.h" /* XXX */
given that the code is typically compiled with _STANDALONE, that
pulls in the host's /usr/include/arpa/tftp.h.
Who knows if the host actually _has_ one, let alone whether or not
it's correct for tftp.c's purpose. (NetBSD and linux hosts seem to
arpa/tftp.h headers which are OK, but Solaris's arpa/tftp.h is
missing some critical definitions.)
Cross compile from a solaris host? (That's pretty hard to do,
but if you spend enough time at it you can do it.)
unknown what the right solution is. can't just include <arpa/tftp.h>,
even if the cross-compiler is built properly (i.e., with complete
NetBSD includes, etc.), because the code is typically compiled with
Probably the closest solution is to provide the necessary definitions
in libsa (i.e., duplicate the information).
