Re: More ctf fallout on a linux host

You are right - ulonglong_t is not necessary and I successfully built tools on Debian 8 after undoing your previous fix and replacing with your new patch of external/cddl/osnet/dist/uts/common/rpc/types.h.

I wonder if it is safe to remove u_longlong_t from <sys/types.h>. Linux does not have it, BSD does not need it. Does any modern software package use it?

Actually it appears u_longlong_t is needed in some of the cddl software, but since now it can build on Linux systems that do not define that type in the system <sys/types.h> file, I wonder if it is necessary to have that type defined in NetBSD's system <sys/types.h> file, which is src/sys/sys/types.h in the source tree or /usr/include/sys/types.h in an installed system. In the build of tools on a Linux build host, it appears the u_longlong_t is defined from the header files in src/external/cddl/osnet/sys/sys and does not depend on u_longlong_t being defined in /usr/include/sys/types.h.

blah, oops. Given the comment I'm not sure ulonglong_t is even
necessary, it doesn't appear anywhere.

Does reverting the previous and adding this (which upstream might
accept, they seem to just forget to remove it) help?

Works for building tools under netbsd.
