   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.
