A friend of mine found that if we defined ARG_MAX inside glob.c that
fixed it.  It turns out that glibc no longer defines ARG_MAX, so NetBSD
code is broke with respect to compiling on Linux machines.  I know
compiling on Linux is not the main priority for NetBSD however, NetBSD
does assert that it can do it without any issue. 
Should I send this issue to a different mailing list in NetBSD?  If so
which one?
Good day,
