one of the libraries (lib/libmagic) would not build because MIN() was
defined twice.  I included a diff which show (I thought) the problem.

It occurred because the local include defined MIN() and then included a
system include which also defined it (always best to put system includes 
first, imho)

sure.  I was worried that people on -users might not be building
"release" from sources.

ps: there is another problem; WARNS?=4 in a makefile causes (usr.bin/xargs)

  .if ${WARNS} > 3
  CFLAGS+=        -std=c99

which is not understood by the vax C compiler.  Probably a gcc version skew
problem only on the vax.
