Yes, the possibility to compile any mount_* as standalone is kept - it's
still possible to 'cd sbin/mount_FOO && make' and it would still
build the binary. Adding/removing stuff from the list is matter
of editing basesrc/sbin/Makefile and basesrc/sbin/mount/Makefile.

True. I'll drop the prototypes from mntopts.h altogether, generate them into
checkname.c directly and update individual sbin/mount_*/mount_*.c
to include prototype for "theirs" mount_FOO.
