Re: getline fallout

For now, my question is this: why do these packages not have problems
building on Linux?

Both those should now be fixed.
kdevelop-base needs a fix and that with prove tricky as their getline hack is just #ifdef and it needs to be autotooled.

Linux *does* see this problem if you have glibc-2.10 as they moved getline out of the _GNU_SOURCE guard in that version. Of course, distros may patch their glibc to put the guard back ...
