I can say the same for the port-masters who leave their ports
broken for days. But the benefits of -fno-common are pretty
obvious: mistakes like having char *foo in one file and int foo in
another, now will cause a build failure.

It would be nice if the individual port-masters would proactively
check their ports so that they would remain buildable, and people
who have cross-port knowledge like you, would work to harmonize
these disparate and undocumented interfaces.
