If you want portable code, i'd refrain from using underspecified types like
`long' and just plain `int' in an interface! But that aside...

If the programs and the plugins are compiled on NetBSD, will they still see
the `orginal' header file? Or do you suspect that they might have their own
copies around that break on linking?
