While building mc I get this error:
subshell.c:66:65: stropts.h: No such file or directory
This is true enough, there is no stropts.h on my system,
which is -CURRENT, updated as of yesterday.

Seems simple enough to debug that I could almost do it
myself -- but I see another problem that worries me a
bit:  after the build stopped with the missing header
error the build was marked as 'build_done' so I didn't
even notice the failure until I tried make install.

A repeat 'make' then shows no error, so it took me
quite awhile to figure out that the build actually
failed.  This behavior seems quite broken to me --
is it now the way things are designed to work?
