  As forward declarations to static variables are valid gcc<4
  that we can keep this line to not change an author's original code
  (and a case for gcc4 having preprocessing).

p.s. and really, as in the pkgsrc version of tacacs
 forward declaration to nopasswd_str is not used
 is possible (I am agree with you) to clean simply this line.
