No, because that would hide broken argument passing.

That would be better but I think we should use inline function *and*
defines. There might be some broken programs out there which use
"#ifdef ntohl" which will be true under NetBSD, Solaris and Linux at
So what about this?
static __inline uint32_t
#define ntohl(x) __ntohl_inline_dummy(x)
