You'll note that some other libsa things depend on <sys/*> even when
_STANDALONE, so this header in question doesn't need to be in
The solution is *really* simple: Move all files which are not libc-tied
from src/include/arpa to src/sys/arpa -- should be everything but
"arpa/inet.h". Then add a bsd.kinc.mk based Makefile to install the
The only reason I won't do this right now is because someone's probably
likely to say "don't do that", since this proposal creates two `arpa'
directories. But as far as I'm concerned, the non-"arpa/inet.h" files only
describe protocol structures and constants, and thus are useful to kernel
and standalone code. "arpa/inet.h", on the other hand, is just a C library
function decl header.
